Ex-QVT Chief's New Firm Launches Emerging Markets Fund

Mar 12 2012 | 2:46pm ET

Worldview Capital Management, a hedge fund led by former QVT Financial CEO Angelo Moskov, has launched a new emerging markets fund.

The Swiss firm features a number of Moskov's former QVT colleagues, a group that has worked together for nine years.

"The team is very excited to continue working together," Moskov told HedgeWeek. "We look forward to inviting a select number of new investors and to growing our investment portfolio in current market conditions that fit well with our investment philosophy."

Worldview will seek deep value in central and eastern Europe, Russia and other former Soviet republics, Central Asia and Africa.

"Opportunities exist because current valuations across asset classes are driven by a lack of liquidity as well as continuing uncertainty surrounding a macro-economic recovery," Moskov explained.
