Tudor Closer to Launching Event-Driven Fund Under Former HMC Exec Dabora

Feb 25 2016 | 10:02pm ET

Famed investor Paul Tudor Jones’ company has begun prepping a new event-driven hedge fund that will seek to make money when companies go through things like mergers, spinoffs and acquisitions.

Tudor Investment Corporation is exploring investor interest in the new vehicle, according to a Bloomberg article citing unidentified sources familiar with the matter. The fund will be run by former Harvard Management Company managing director and equity markets head Emil Dabora, who joined Tudor just over a year ago with the creation of the new event-driven fund in mind.

Prior to joining Tudor in 2009, Dabora created the event-driven group for macro hedge fund manager Caxton Group, noted the article.

Jones is one of the most renowned investors on Wall Street, having founded Greenwich, CT-based Tudor Investment Corporation in 1980 and growing it into a global alternative asset manager with more than $13 billion in AUM across a wide range of discretionary global macro, quantitative global macro, managed futures, quantitative equity systems and discretionary equity long/short strategies.
