Regiment Vets Launch Fort Warren Capital With $200M


Aug 5 2014 | 3:18pm ET

Fort Warren Capital Management, the Boston-based firm started by former Regiment Capital Advisors senior analysts Eugene Lee and Paul Singh, started trading last week with $200 million in assets.

The assets include an allocation from The Investment Fund for Foundations, which oversees about $11 billion for non-profits, a source familiar with the matter told FINalternatives.


Fort Warren separately hired Marc Volpe as chief financial officer, said the source. Volpe previously was chief compliance officer at Regiment, the credit fund founded by Tim Peterson after he left Harvard University’s endowment.


The firm also hired two analysts: Peter Kim, most recently vice president at GLC Advisors & Co., and Doug Wooden, a former research analyst at DDJ Capital Management.


Lee and Singh left Regiment Capital in 2013 to start Fort Warren Capital with plans to launch its first hedge fund this year. The two said at the time the fund would be focused on credit with equities making up as much as 40% of assets.


Lee worked at Regiment from 2008 to 2013. Before that, he was a managing director at GSO Capital Partners from 2006 to 2008 and a managing director at Evercore Partners from 1999 to 2006.

Singh worked at Regiment from 2007 to 2013. Prior to that, he was a senior analyst at Hammerman Capital Management from 2002 to 2007.


A spokesman for Fort Warren declined to comment on the new fund.
