|Ed Bosek, who left Atticus Capital LP last May after six years with the firm as an analyst, is teaming up with Noam Ohana, another former Atticus Capital employee, to start their own hedge fund. According to Bloomberg, Ohana, who was a fund of funds manager at Atticus will be the Chief Operating Officer while Bosek will be the lead portfolio manager. |
The pair is just one of several former Atticus employees who are considering launching new funds following Atticus Capital founder Timoth Barakett's announcement in August that he was liquidating the $2.5 billion Global Fund and a $600 million fund in order to spend more time with his family.
Bosek and Ohana's fund, Beacon Light Capital LLC will invest in global equities and is planning on launching in January of next year.
