Homm Recuperating In Miami After Venezuela Attack

Nov 27 2006 | 11:18am ET

Zug-based hedge fund manager Florian Homm is recovering in Miami after being shot by a robber in Venezuela.

Homm, the co-founder and chief investment officer of $2.3 billion Absolute Capital Management, and a friend, were attacked on Nov. 16 near Simon Bolivar International Airport in Caracas by a gunman on a motorcycle, according to a statement from Absolute Capital. Both men were hit in the chest, though a spokesperson for the firm said the wounds were not life-threatening.

The 6-foot-8 Homm “received good medical care in Caracas,” and flew to Miami to “rest for a week” last Monday. He is due back in the office in London on Nov. 29, but Absolute Capital assures investors that “He is in constant contact with the team in Europe.”
