Berger's B1 Capital will launch a Europe-focused, fundamental long/short equity fund, Financial News reports. He has won a seed investment and will debut with that and investments from a handful of anchor investors.

Pfäffikon, Switzerland-based B1 has a team of six, including Berger and Megan Kenney, who serves as CEO. Kenney was European head of capital services at Credit Suisse until October.
