Investcorp has seeded its second hedge fund in three weeks, investing $50 million in Stoneworks Asset Management, a London-based global macro shop.
Stoneworks was founded last year by Max Trautman, a former senior member of Goldman Sachs’ global macro proprietary trading group and co-founder of multi-strategy hedge fund Peloton Partners.

Last week, the firm last month committed $50 to New Jersey-based Washington Corner Capital Management, a distressed and credit-based strategy.
