Last Atlantis joins forces with former Tudor trader at to launch new share class
Last Atlantis Capital Management, based in St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands, and Jerry Considine, a former head currency trader at Tudor Investment, have joined forces to launch the LACM Foreign Exchange Share Class W within the Last Atlantis Partners Fund. The share class will be traded by Considine and seeks to capitalise on near-term opportunities in the global currency futures and foreign exchange markets.
The short-term, largely discretionary methodology developed and employed by Considine has produced consistently non-correlated returns since inception. It combines fundamental and technical market analysis, sentiment evaluation, crowd psychology assessment and money management to create a risk-averse investment strategy.
'Jerry has established an exceptional track record and reputation over the course of his career including stellar turns at Tudor and his own trading firm,' says Irwin Berger, managing partner of Last Atlantis. 'His currency programme adds another quality alternative to our Last Atlantis Partners platform.'
With the launch of this new offering Considine is continuing a career trading the currency markets spanning nearly 30 years. Following stints at Citibank and Drexel Burnham Lambert, Considine's abilities caught the eye of Paul Tudor Jones, who hired Jerry in 1990 to trade for his entities.
After three years at Tudor, Considine achieved a highly regarded track record and reputation and left to establish Considine Trading in 1995. Trading institutional and proprietary funds, he delivered consistently profitable results through the firm's lifetime. After a year's break from the industry, Considine returned to trading in April 2004.
