A pair of Goldman Sachs veterans are readying a global-macro fixed-income hedge fund, backed by Investcorp.
Rishi Chadda and Cyrus Pouraghabagher's Kingsguard Advisors will launch its maiden hedge fund next month. The strategy has been seeded with $50 million from Bahrain-based Investcorp, among the first bond-based global-macro funds backed by the firm.
Investcorp will also provide risk-management, marketing and operational services to Kingsguard, Bloomberg News reports.

Chadda, like Pouraghabagher, joined Goldman's mortgage department in 1997. Chadda rose to become a managing director in the interest-rate products group and Pouraghabagher a vice president on its mortgage-trading desk.
