Talson Capital Joins FIS Group for Hedge Fund of Funds LaunchParagon Discovery Fund, a hedge fund of funds, has been launched by FIS Group, an asset management and investment firm focused on emerging manager strategies to generate alpha, in partnership with Talson Capital Management, LLC, a registered investment advisory firm located in Darien, Connecticut.
FIS Group CEO & CIO, Tina Byles Williams, commented, "Over the past five years, we have been approached by several hedge funds proposing that we form a joint venture entity. While there are several well respected hedge fund of funds in the industry, what was most appealing about this opportunity is the caliber of experience and firsthand knowledge that both Dominic [Napolitano] and Robin [Willoughby] bring to the table. Dominic has actually managed and traded assets, giving him a very unique perspective and frankly, a significant edge relative to his peers. Robin has also successfully managed custom and commingled hedge fund portfolios for some of the wealthiest families in the U.S."
Talson’s principals, Napolitano and Willoughby, bring a wealth of experience to the table. Napolitano has 28 years of experience in the hedge fund industry, including portfolio management across all asset classes with Tudor Investment Corporation and Graham Capital Management. He was also instrumental in building and managing multi-billion dollar portfolios of hedge funds at Soros Fund Management for eight years.Source: Opalesque
