John W. Henry & Co. Vet Readies New Hedge Fund

Jun 6 2014 | 4:55am ET

John W. Henry & Co. veteran Mark Rzepczynski is gearing up to launch a new hedge fund, AMPHI Capital Management.

According to a source close to the firm, Rzepczynski has teamed up on the new venture with Perry Kaufman, a managed futures veteran who has previously worked for macro-oriented Graham Capital Management, and Timothy Tanko, who was previously president of 66 Capital and before that a partner at Anchor Asset Management.

AMPHI Capital, has offices in Chicago and Boston. The firm is a systematic global macro manager that will invest across all asset classes and liquid markets using rules-based decision-making processes.

“Given the type of models employed, we expect to be correlated to traditional assets in up markets but have a low to negative correlation in down markets. The program will perform better in volatile and uncertain environments,” according to the firm’s marketing documents.

Rzepczynski served as chief investment officer of John W. Henry & Co. before departing in January of 2007.
