A Tudor Investment Corp. power and gas trader will launch his own hedge fund, apparently with the blessing of Tudor chief Paul Tudor Jones.
Andrew McMillan will launch a fund in Singapore, where he has been based for Tudor, along with five other Tudor veterans, Reuters reports. McMillan's exit from the US$11.6 billion firm after a decade is said to be amicable; Tudor partners are expected to invest in McMillan's new firm.
