The former global chief economist at Lehman Brothers is planning to launch his own hedge fund.

John Llewellyn, who was global chief economist at Lehman Brothers prior to its 2008 collapse, told Financial News that while he has not firmed up his hedge fund proposal, “research would be key to [the] idea” and “would aim to back three or four themes a year.”

An undisclosed U.S.-based seeding firm has committed capital to the new fund.

If the fund is launched, it will be advised by Llewellyn’s investment advisory boutique Llewellyn Consulting , which is an independent firm that regularly publishes economic reports.
