At long last, Rubicon Fund Management's former chief investment officers are back in the hedge fund industry.
Timothy Attias and Santiago Alarco's Canosa Capital debuted today with about US$300 million, Bloomberg News reports. The London-based global macro fund is backed by Sweden's Brummer & Partners, which will also own a stake in Cansoa.
Alarco and Attias' new fund will invest in fixed-income, currencies, equity indices and commodities. The highly-liquid portfolio will be structured around three to four themes with six or seven trades in each.
The launch comes a year after Attias and Alarco settled a lawsuit filed by Rubicon, accusing them of breaching their fiduciary duty to the hedge fund after founder Paul Brewer was seriously injured in 2009 when he fell from a horse. The two had planned to open a hedge fund called Sata Partners with former GAM research chief Catherine Cripps in 2011, plans that were derailed by Rubicon's lawsuit.
Canosa charges 2% for management and 20% for performance, although early investors will pay only 1% for management.
