Tudor Investment's Torell To Chair MFA

Sep 25 2013 | 7:38am ET

Tudor Investment managing director and CFO John R.Torell, IV has been elected board chair of the Managed Funds Association, a hedge fund lobby group.

“Ongoing global policy discussions and new regulation relevant to our industry require an effective and engaged MFA,” said Torell in a statement. “Over 30% of the Dodd-Frank Act rules have yet to be proposed, the EU continues to implement regulations, and regulatory regimes are being refined or proposed in Asia and other parts of the world where hedge fund investment is growing. This board of directors understands the unique challenges we face as a global industry and has the skill, experience, and vision to ensure MFA is a successful advocate for our global member firms.”

In addition to Torell, newly elected directors serving two-year terms on MFA’s board include: Bruce S. Darringer, King Street Capital Management; Michael Harris, Campbell & Company; Daniel H. Kochav, Tenor Capital Management; Timothy I. Levart, Davidson Kempner Capital Management; and Steven Wagshal, Samlyn Capital.

Directors re-elected to serve two-year terms on the board include: William R. Goodell, Maverick Capital; Keith L. Horn, Elliott Management; Henry Kenner, Arrowgrass Capital Partners; Mark Madden, Tyrus Capital; and, Jeffrey A. Weber, York Capital Management.

David Haley of HBK Capital Management will serve as vice chair and Howard Altman of Rothstein Kass as treasurer.
