Jerry Considine, a former head currency trader at Tudor Investment, has joined St. Thomas-based Last Atlantis Capital Management to launch LACM Foreign Exchange, a share class within the Last Atlantis Partners Fund.
The share class will be traded by Considine and seeks to capitalize on near-term opportunities in the global currency futures and foreign exchange markets. The short-term, largely discretionary strategy developed by Considine combines fundamental and technical market analysis, sentiment evaluation, crowd psychology assessment, and money management to create a uniquely risk-averse investment strategy.
“Jerry has established an exceptional track record and reputation over the course of his career including stellar turns at Tudor and his own trading firm,” said Irwin Berger, managing partner of Last Atlantis. “His currency program adds another quality alternative to our Last Atlantis Partners platform.”
Considine worked for Paul Tudor Jones starting in 1990 and left five years later to start his own firm, Considine Trading Corporation.
The Last Atlantis Partners Fund is master-feeder offering currently providing onshore and offshore investors access to 15 segregated share classes with individual fund strategies incorporating proprietary and discretionary options, trend following futures, multi-strategy, macro discretionary, credit receivables, real estate financing and others.
The firm was founded by managing directors Berger and Stig Ostgaard, one of the original Richard Dennis “Turtles.”
