Global alternative asset manager, GLG Partners LP, is teaming up with two of the founding partners of London hedge fund Pendragon Capital, Kaveh Sheibani and Julian Harvey Wood, to focus on event driven strategies.
In addition, GLG Partners LP will become the investment manager of the funds and accounts managed by Pendragon Capital. Before founding and managing Pendragon Capital with Gordon Lawson, Kaveh and Julian had worked together managing European proprietary trading in equities at Salomon Brothers (subsequently Citigroup).
"Kaveh and Julian are both highly experienced, event driven professionals and we expect that this team will greatly enhance and expand GLG's own event driven franchise," Emmanuel Roman, Co-CEO of GLG commented.
As of September 30, 2008, GLG managed net AUM of over $17 billion.
