Fresh from business school, a former Farallon Capital Management analyst is set to go into business for himself.
Nate Singer will launch his Angel Island Partners hedge fund in July, HFMWeek reports. The recent Harvard Business School graduate expects to have about $50 million in initial assets for its Public Equities Fund.
Half of the money for the long/short equity fund has already been committed in the form of seed capital.
San Francisco-based Angel Island will focus on "quirky" situations. Singer plans to build a concentrated portfolio of structured finance, student loans, business services and global coal export holdings.
Singer worked at Soros Fund Management and interned at Marcato before spending three years at Farallon. He left that firm in 2009 to attend Harvard.
