Falcon Edge Raises $75M For New Hedge Fund

Feb 5 2014 | 1:07pm ET

Falcon Edge Capital founder and CIO Richard Gerson has launched on and offshore versions of his new hedge fund with $75 million, according to regulatory filings.

The Falcon Sovereign Fund carries a $100,000 minimum investment.

Gerson launched Falcon Edge, a long-short equity, global markets-­focused hedge fund firm, with $1.2 billion in 2012 along with Eton Park vets Navroz Udwadia and James Minshull.

Gerson began his career with an internship at Julian Robertson's Tiger Management and later helped Robertson deputy John Griffin launch Blue Ridge Capital. Griffin is rumored to be a Falcon Edge backer.

A call to Falcon Edge for further information on the new fund was not returned by the time of publication.
