George Weiss & Associates is expected to start accepting assets from external investors later this year through a new hedge fund vehicle. The multi-strategy manager, which was found by George Weiss in 1978, reportedly manages approximately $1 billion in assets for firm principals, but has not managed assets for outsiders for over 10 years.

When George Weiss & Associates last ran money for external investors, the hedge fund portfolio reportedly returned more than 50% per year on an annual basis. Accordingly, investor interest is expected to be very high for this year’s launch.
