Former Deutsche Bank Trader Works on the Launch of a Hedge FundA former Deutsche Bank RMBS trader Troy Dixon, is working on the launch of a hedge fund that will seek to seize the "significant opportunities" in the $13.5 trillion structured products market.
Troy Dixon, who managed around 70 traders and 100 support people as co-head of structured products at Deutsche Bank, left the bank in October 2013 after almost eight years there – and 20 years on Wall Street in structured products. He sat on the America’s executive committee at the bank so he also understood the "business" side of launching a hedge fund, according to Ajai Thomas, his new head of investor relations and a former colleague. This is why he assembled a team of eight people for his new independent venture, Hollis Park Partners, which offices opened a couple of months ago. The investment team includes Joe Valentine, an ex-Navy Seal who is an investor into Academy (formerly known as Blackwater).Source: Opalesque
