Perella Weinberg Partners is set to launch a new global macro hedge fund headed by a new partner.
The New York-based firm said that Maria Vassalou would helm the new PWP Global Macro Strategy. The vehicle will invest in stock indices, currencies, sovereign debt, credit and commodities, with an eye towards liquidity.
The fund's manager, Vassalou, comes to Perella Weinberg from McKinsey & Co.'s MIO Partners unit, where she managed a similar global macro strategy. Vassalou's résumé also boasts stints at SAC Capital Management and Soros Fund Management, and more than a decade on the faculty of Columbia Business School.
"I am excited to join Perella Weinberg Partners and to deliver a global macro strategy to investors as part of this well-respected asset management franchise," Vassalou said. "We hope to provide value to our investors with a strategy that is motivated by fundamental macro-economic relationships and robust economic analysis and that employs a rigorous risk management framework. I look forward to working with the Firm’s talented professionals as we launch this strategy and to bringing this new investment solution to investors."
