Eton Park To Lose Two Partners

Nov 20 2013 | 1:24pm ET

Two more partners at Eton Park Capital Management are leaving the firm, including another founding partner.

Isaac Corré and Josh Astrof will leave the $10 billion New York-based hedge fund early next year, The Wall Street Journal reports. Their exits will bring to six the number of partners to leave Eton Park over the past three years.

It is unclear why Corré and Astrof plan to leave, or what their future plans are.

Corré was an original partner at Eton Park when it was set up by former Goldman Sachs star Eric Mindich in 2004. Astrof joined a year later from the Blackstone Group. Corré worked at Scoggin Capital Management before joining Mindich's startup.

The exodus of Eton Park partners began in July 2011 with the exit of Thierry Lucas, who went on to found Portland Hill Capital. Founding partner Edward Misrahi left in 2012 to found Ronit Capital, and London-based partner Robert Dafforn left in January. Another founding partner, Anand Desai, left Eton Park in April.
