With summer just a few months away and energy prices projected to soar to record highs, one hedge fund honcho is looking to cash in.  

Charles Leykum, a former portfolio manager at Soros Fund Management, is prepping an energy hedge fund dubbed the CSL Energy Fund for launch this summer. Leykum said the fund is a long/short equity vehicle but declined to disclose any other specifics on his new offering.  

“Were excited about the upcoming launch and the opportunities in the market,” he said, adding that he’s currently looking for a CFO as the final piece to his new Greenwich, Conn.-based shop.
