Paul Radley, formerly European head of Citigroup’s prime brokerage capital introduction team, has gone independent, establishing his own capital introduction firm, Radley Capital Investments.The business, which is co-owned by Joe Seet of Sigma Partnership, a hedge fund support company, will operate in the hedge fund sector, acting as an intermediary between funds and potential investors. Through its partnership with Sigma, the company will also offer due diligence, allowing funds to outsource this function.
Radley has worked in prime brokerage since 1987, starting his career at Morgan Stanley before moving to Citigroup in 1999.
“The demand for hedge funds will continue to grow as institutional investors, pension funds and high-net-worth investors seek to improve their investment returns by allocating part of their portfolios into absolute return strategies”, said Radley. “The difficulty is matching up those funds that have capacity and emerging managers with investors’ requirements, and the only way to do this is to offer a high standard of due diligence.”
