The energy analyst and senior vice president at MF Global, the former futures brokerage business of Man Group, has left the firm and founded his own hedge fund. New York-based Round Earth Capital will specialize in energy and the global food markets, the firm said in a press release.
Round Earth will specialize on both food markets, including cocoa, coffee and sugar, and energy markets, including oil, distillate fuels and gasoline, it said.
Kilduff is joined at the new venture by Carl Whelahan and Marcelo Dorea, both as partners. Whelahan formerly worked at Credit Suisse, while Dorea worked at Phibro, the former Citigroup proprietary trading group, and Goldman Sachs.
Kilduff told Bloomberg News that the new firm is targeting institutional investors.
