Hedge fund guru John Paulson is planning to launch a hedge fund to help investors lower their taxes.

Bloomberg reported that Paulson, the founder and president of New York-based Paulson & Co., has invited potential clients to the hedge fund’s office on April 24 to present the new fund, which will include a 15-minute discussion of tax-deferred or tax-free investing.

eVestment reported last month that Paulson was considering a move to Puerto Rico to avoid domestic high tax rates. Puerto Rico recently passed a law that would eliminate taxes on gains, which would benefit Paulson as he has about $9.5 billion invested in his own hedge funds.
