The Manager’s Perspective

The Manager’s Perspective

By Chris Zellner, Co-Founder, COO and CCO, Asymmetry Capital Management – Asymmetry Capital Management is a diversified equity long/short healthcare fund located in San Francisco. We launched the fund in January 2013. We launched the Fund in an infrastructure partnership with a boutique asset manager, which enabled us to use their trading desk. In September 2015, as they were being sold to another firm, we took the decision to spin out on our own. Doing so meant we needed to replicate the infrastructure partnership we had enjoyed.
