Multi-strategy hedge fund firm Hutchin Hill Capital has appointed Matt Edmonds as president, according to a source close to the firm.
Edmonds was previously president of Atticus Capital—one of the largest hedge funds in the world with more than $20 billion in assets under management. Atticus closed in 2009. Most recently, Edmonds served as chief executive officer and a member of the investment committee at TRB Advisors, a $1 billion firm that invests the capital of Atticus founder Tim Barakett.
As president of Hutchin Hill, which was founded by Neil Chriss in 2008 and manages approximately $1.4 billion, Edmonds will be the senior executive on the non-investment side of the business and chair of the firm’s operating committee. In this role, Edmonds succeeds Greg Racz, who is leaving the firm. Chriss will continue to oversee the firm’s capital allocation, risk management, and management and recruitment of the firm’s portfolio managers.
Through February 21, Hutchin Hill’s Diversified Alpha Master Fund was up approximately 4%.
