SocGen Commodities Vets Launch Hedge Fund

May 22 2012 | 8:12am ET

Two Société Générale vets have joined forces to launch a multi-commodity discretionary hedge fund.
 
Frédéric Lasserre, who built and headed the SG commodity research and strategy team, and Christophe Cordonnier, who set up and led the bank's sales and structuring commodity investor business, are launching Paris-based Belaco Capital.

They will be assisted by François Beuzelin, who spent 12 years at SG, heading metals trading and working in a commodity fund.

“There is still unsatisfied demand from investors for absolute return on commodities,” said Cordonnier in a statement.

“We believe it is crucial to rely on solid expertise in trendless and highly volatile markets we experience during recessionary times,” said Lasserre.

Added Buezelin: “We think the combination of trading, fundamental research and financial engineering is the ideal mix to bring value to investors.”
