The former chief investment officer at Soros Fund Management has begun fundraising for his own hedge fund in earnest.
Keith Anderson began seeking investors for his Anderson Global Macro recently, Reuters reports. Anderson hopes to raise between $500 million and $1 billion for the fund, which should debut this year.
Anderson set up the New York-based firm after he left Soros in the wake of its transition to a family office. The BlackRock co-founder worked at Soros from 2008 through 2011.
