Tudor Vet Serves As Chief Strategist For New Hedge Fund Incubator

Aug 6 2014 | 11:45am ET

Quad Advisors, a hedge fund incubator and accelerator that boasts a Tudor Investment Corporation vet as its chief strategist, has signed its first two hedge funds.

Peter Borish, a founding partner of Tudor, recruits new hedge funds for Quad Advisors as well as serving as a trading coach, helping traders develop a methodology to enhance their performance. 

Quad has signed Go Capital Partners and a second, unnamed fund as the first residents of its platform.

Quad provides small and mid-size hedge funds a scalable trading platform, in-house analyst research, risk assessment, accounting and technology services, as well as access to Quad and investor capital.

“Quad Advisors has a robust platform with the necessary infrastructure needed to run a successful hedge fund,” Borish in a statement. “Think of the ‘alphabet soup’ that plays into whether or not firms are successful. You need a great GC, a great CFO, CTO, CCO and so forth. Quad has outstanding, experienced executives in every role.”

Said Roland Oosterhout of Go Capital Partners in a statement:

“We were impressed with Quad’s credibility within the Wall Street community and the reputation of the senior management team in attracting world class investors which will allow us to access more capital. We are excited about partnering with Quad Advisors and using the tools its platform provides. Our trading strategy is our number one priority and by accessing Quad Advisors’ infrastructure we can concentrate on what we do best.”

Quad Advisors is affiliated with Quad Capital, a multi-strategy proprietary trading firm founded in 2007. The firm provides technology and access to firm capital from offices in New York, Boca Raton and San Diego.
