Eric Mandelblatt plans to launch his new Soroban Capital Partners hedge fund with an impressive $500 million in investments when it begins trading next month. Prior to founding Soroban, Mr. Mandelblatt was co-CEO of Dinakar Singh’s TPG-Axon Capital. Before TPG-Axon, Mandelblatt was trader and eventually the chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs’ venerable principal strategies group.

Mr. Mandelblatt’s equity-focused Soroban Capital Partners, according to Bloomberg,
is the latest in a string of high-profile launches started by Goldman veterans: Mark Carhart’s Kepos Capital and Pierre-Henri Flamand’s Edoma Capital Services are two other hedge funds expected to open with at least $500 million. Mr. Carhart was Co-Chief Investment Officer of Goldman’s Quantitative Investment Strategies Group and co-managed the firm’s quantitative Global Alpha Fund. Mr. Flamand led the firm’s Principal Strategies unit until last March.
