It hasn't taken Carl Huttenlocher long to make his new hedge fund nearly as large as his old one.
The former Highbridge Capital Management Asia head has raised US$900 million for his Myriad Asset Management, Bloomberg News reports. The Hong Kong-based hedge fund launched at the beginning of December with US$340 million.
Huttenlocher has previously said he hopes to raise US$2 billion for Myriad before closing it to new investment by the middle of the year.
Myriad Opportunities Master Fund returned about 3% in its first three months.
Huttenlocher managed US$1.4 billion at Highbridge. That firm liquidated his Asia Opportunities Fund after Huttenlocher resigned last March.
