Hedge fund manager-turned-art dealer Kashya Hildebrand is moving her gallery to London from Zurich.
Bloomberg reported that Hildebrand, who was a partner at New York-based hedge fund firm Moore Capital Management, will open her new London gallery on June 26.
The article said that Hildebrand moved the whole family to London after her husband, Philipp Hildebrand, took the role of vice chairman at BlackRock. He resigned as president of the Swiss National bank last year after his wife made dollar purchases three weeks before the SNB imposed a currency cap.
Hildebrand said that hedge fund concepts, such as the “idea of a commodity, of supply and demand, of events structuring the narrative," have helped her in the art market.
