Tudor Investment Corp. has launched its first new macro fund in 10 years, two years after restricting inflows to its flagship hedge fund.
The Greenwich, Conn.-based firm's new Tudor Discretionary Macro Portfolios will be run by 14 of the firm's managers, including some of its most senior. Firm founder Paul Tudor Jones will not be among the 14; instead, the new fund, which debuted with $500 million, including $150 million from Tudor itself, will be used to give other managers more money to play with while the flagship BVI Global fund is restricting new investments.
BVI Global put such restrictions in place in 2010; it currently has $9 billion in assets, the lion's share of Tudor's total $11.4 billion.
The new fund has a seven-member investment committee, including Jones and two two-decade Tudor veterans, Spencer Lampert and Björn Nielsen, Bloomberg News reports. It also features Andrew Bound, Adam Grunfeld, Richard Jackson and Aadarsh Malde.
