The founding partners of SunTx Capital Partners, in collaboration with veteran senior portfolio manager Ron Dodson, have launched IXTHYS Capital Management, a hedge fund investment manager.
IXTHYS will be headquartered within SunTx’s Dallas offices but will be managed distinctly and separately from SunTx’s sponsored private equity funds. SunTx’s founding partners have made initial capital contributions.
Dodson, a derivative instruments trader with nearly 20 years of experience, will serve as IXTHYS’ portfolio manager. Dodson most recently served as the portfolio manager at NorCap Investment Management, overseeing the firm’s Diversified Premium Fund.
Ned Fleming (pictured), founder and managing partner of SunTx, says: “We are pleased to announce the formation of IXTHYS Premium Alpha Fund and our new strategic partnership with Ron Dodson, whom I have known and respected for a very long time. We are very excited about this opportunity.”
Dodson says: “IXTHYS will be guided by two principles – integrity and results. I am delighted to be partnering with Ned Fleming and SunTx, to capitalise on my two decades of experience trading listed derivative instruments.”
