Llewellyn, Former Lehman Strategist, Eyes Hedge Fund

May 6 2014 | 3:09pm ET

Lehman Brothers’ former chief global economist may launch a hedge fund.

John Llewellyn is mulling a macro hedge fund, drawing on the expertise of his advisory business, Llewellyn Consulting. The fund—should it come to pass—would be backed by an unnamed seeding partner, based in the U.S., Financial News reports.

Llewellyn told FN that he’s still working on his plans, but that “research would be key to this idea. We would aim to back three or four themes a year.”

Those themes would come from Llewellyn Consultings’ reading of central bank policy views. “Their views are heavily coded. Market participants don’t always know how to deal with this.”
