CSFB's former head of Asian investment banking, Neil Harvey, has teamed up with three ex-Macquarie traders to launch a new pan-Asia fund.
The team is setting up Bennelong Asset Management in London and is preparing to launch a multi-strategy pan-Asia hedge fund early next year.
Harvey will take charge of business development, capital raising and investor relations for the new fund.
Richard Pegum, previously head of global equity derivatives trading at Macquarie, will take on the role of CIO, while Mark Konda, who was Macquarie's global head of equity finance, will be the new fund's COO. Paul Henry, a trader for 11 years, will serve as head of trading.
The ex-Macquarie trio left the firm in 2002 and before joining Bennelong, it ran the equity proprietary trading operations in London for Standard Bank.
