Goldman Vets Ready Asia Hedge Fund

Aug 13 2013 | 11:34am ET

A trio of former Goldman Sachs managing directors are set to launch an Asian multi-strategy hedge fund.

Koji Gotoda, Takayuki Kasama and a third former Goldman MD have founded Golvis Investment in Singapore. The new firm also features a further six Goldman veterans among its roughly 11 initial employees, Bloomberg News reports.

Golvis will focus initially on Japan, where the firm's three founders worked at Goldman. It will invest across all asset classes.

Gotoda was head of Asian convertible bond trading and Kasama co-head of Japanese credit trading. The latter left the bank in June and the former in July. Golvis' head of business development is Ryan Collins.

Gotoda will meet with potential investors in October at Goldman's annual hedge fund event in Singapore.
