As announced earlier, Pierre-Henri Flamand left his post as the head of Goldman Sachs’ renowned Principal Strategies unit in early 2010 to start-up his own global event-driven hedge fund. According to the Financial News, the new hedge fund manager has been named Edoma Capital and is aiming to launch in the fall of 2010 with approximately $1 billion in assets.

Mr. Flamand has recently announced that the he has filled a number of senior posts with colleagues from Goldman. The appointments include Ali Hedayat and Emmanuel Niogret, both of whom were previously managing directors in Goldman’s Principal Strategies group.

Edoma Capital will be based in Geneva, Switzerland, probably as a reaction against higher taxes in the UK and increased regulation in the US.
