Eton Park Capital Management LP has ventured outside its primarily equities-based strategies by raising $400 million for a new hedge fund that will focus on trust preferred securities and collateralized debt obligations. According to Bloomberg News, founder Eric Mindich, the youngest person ever to be made partner at Goldman Sachs (when he was 27), launched the Credit Opportunities Fund II LP in May adding to the $12 billion currently under management at Eton Park Capital Management LP.

Eric Mindich, whose global and emerging markets equities funds lost 11% in 2011, is also known for his especially restrictive redemption policies which tie investors to a rolling three-year lockup or face a 6 percent early-exit penalty.
