Prasad was Citigroup's global head of foreign exchange until leaving to found Silver Ridge with former Sciens Capital Management CIO Farhang Mehregani in April 2015. 

The macro fund, which raised nearly $300 million prior to launch and began trading in early 2016, has gained 5% so far this year through March 31, according to documents cited by Reuters.
