Hutchin Hill Capital is setting up shop at the site of one of its biggest victories.
The New York-based firm is opening an office in London. Hutchin Hill hopes to be operational in the British capital in six months, pending Financial Services Authority approval, ValueWalk reports.
Hutchin Hill returned 1.73% in the second quarter, erasing its first-half loss and leaving the fund up 0.8% on the year.
