Weintraub Vets Launch Hedge Fund

Nov 13 2013 | 1:43pm ET

Three Weintraub Capital Management alumni have launched their own hedge fund.

Former Weintraub director of operations Diana Mah has joined forces with former portfolio managers Peter Luber and Joe Ziolkowski to launch Post Street Capital Management.

According to regulatory filings, the new fund launched in August 2013 with $70 million from a single investor.

The launch comes almost a year after Weintraub founder Jerry Weintraub announced he would return outside capital and transform his $1 billion San Francisco-based hedge fund into a family office.

Mah, who is chief operations officer at the San Francisco-based Post Street, left Weintraub in April 2013; while Luber and Ziolkowski, both managing partners at Post Street, left Weintraub in 2012.

Weintraub Capital was a long/short equity shop but it's not clear what strategy Post Street will run.

Dspite its name, records show that the new firm has rented 2,042 square feet of office space at the landmark One Sansome Street Tower.

FINalternatives was unable to reach anyone at Post Street for comment.
