Paulson & Co. Hedge Fund | John PaulsonThe following piece on Highbridge Capital Management LLC (co-founder Henry Swieca pictured left) is being published as part of our daily effort to track hedge fund events in the industry.

One hedge fund we're seeing some short positions from is John Paulson's Paulson & Co. Paulson is famous for the fortune he made by betting against subprime at the beginning of the crisis. And, now, it looks as if he's ready to turn his focus to some UK financials. Taken from StreetInsider, we get a solid breakdown of what Paulson is shorting: "Paulson & Co. yesterday disclosed short positions in four of the five largest British banks.

The bet now makes Paulson the largest short seller of UK banks. According to the filing, Paulson's hedge fund has taken a $650 million bet against shares of Barclays (BCS), a $542 million bet against Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), and a $483 million bet against Lloyds TSB (LYG)."
