Less than a year after selling seven-year-old FrontPoint to the firm he left to found it for $400 million, Duff is launching a new hedge fund this month. Robson Ventures will reportedly utilize both hedge fund and private equity strategies, calling itself “the next generation investment management company.” Reuters reports the fund will launch with some $300 million.
