Christian Baha Wall Street
Christian Baha Cameos in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps
Hedge fund managers are well known for extracting huge fees from their wealthy investors. Relatively few have landed a role in a client's Hollywood blockbuster.
However, Christian Baha, head of $1.2 billon hedge fund group Superfund, has been given a cameo in "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps," the sequel to the 1987 original "Wall Street", thanks to a friendship with director -- and Superfund investor -- Oliver Stone.
Baha, whose computer-driven funds aim to exploit trends in global futures markets, has a short speaking role as, perhaps unsurprisingly, a hedge fund manager, while Michael Douglas resumes the role of ruthless financier Gordon Gekko in a film some have seen as a thinly-veiled attack on Goldman Sachs (GS.N).
Baha, a serial entrepreneur who quit a job as a policeman in Vienna in the 1990s to focus on his businesses, now divides his time between Monaco, Vienna and Los Angeles, where he met Stone, a spokesman said. Source
