Oct 16 2007 | 9:48am ET

Goldman Sachs has moved its most successful proprietary trader to its asset management unit, where he will run a new hedge fund.

Goldman Sachs Asset Management has begun to raise money for Raanan Agus’ new fund, which will employ a similar strategy to that he used at the Wall Street giant’s multi-strategy principal strategies group.
