Bedwick’s Guard Eyes July Launch

Jun 10 2014 | 1:20pm ET

A new Asia macro hedge fund helmed by veterans of Sequence Asset Management and Goldman Sachs will debut next month.

Allan Bedwick and Leland Lim’s Guard Capital Management hopes to launch its maiden fund in July, Reuters reports. It is not clear how much the firm will have to manage at inception. Guard is still awaiting approval from Hong Kong regulators.

Bedwick closed Sequence in 2012, citing fundraising difficulties, and moved to Noble Group, where he was head of macro trading in Asia. He’ll run the new firm’s operations while Lim, former co-head of Asia-Pacific ex-Japan macro trading at Goldman, will manage its investments.

The two are joined at Guard by at least four other executives. Freda Chan, former COO at Vision Investment, as head of operations; Sean Giefeng, formerly of Nomura Holdings and BlueCrest Capital Management, as head of trading; Bin Gao, most recently a rates strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, as head of strategy; and Matthew Edwards, formerly of Grosvenor Capital Management, as head of business development.
