Tidan Capital names Head of Volatility and Options Arbitrage

Related Topics

Stockholm-based hedge fund firm Tidan Capital has appointed Magnus Linder as Portfolio Manager of Nova, a market neutral volatility and options arbitrage strategy scheduled to launch during Q2 2024.

The strategy is expected to first go live during the summer as part of a bespoke mandate for a large US institutional investor. Later during Q3, a commingled fund, seeded by a Swedish family office with a target investment of $100m, will be launched within Tidan’s RAIF structure in Luxembourg.

Linder joins Titan from Swedbank Robur, a Nordic financial institution, where he served as Head of Portfolio Optimisation and Derivatives Trading and helped to develop ESG derivatives.

In recent years, which have been marked by dramatic market fluctuations affecting both equity and volatility investors, the Nova strategy has delivered strong risk-adjusted returns, particularly in 2022.

In a press statement, Serge Houles, Head of Client Portfolio Management at Tidan, said: “The Nova strategy is uniquely positioned with its robust absolute returns and strong performance in volatile markets, providing a critical counterbalance when volatility spikes challenge peer funds. Magnus’s approach seamlessly aligns with our philosophy of crafting relevant, impactful investment solutions.”

Linder will take up his new Partner role at Titan with immediate effect and will also serve on the firm’s investment committee.
