The former co-head of Goldman Sachs’ macro trading team in Asia-Pacific is planning to launch a Hong Kong-based hedge fund.
Bloomerg reported that Leland Lim, who retired from Goldman last month after 17 years with the New York-based bank, wants to launch the firm around the middle of the year. The firm will trade mostly currency and interest-rate instruments in Asia.
Lim will be responsible for managing investments at the new firm.
Lim joined Goldman Sachs in New York in 1997 on its foreign-exchange options desk and moved to Asia in 1999 to work on such instruments in Hong Kong and Tokyo. He was promoted to managing director in 2006 and made partner in 2010
