Tudor Alum's Hedge Fund Spinout Starts With Over $1 Billion

"Dharmesh Maniyar, who has traded for hedge fund titans such as Paul Tudor Jones and Alan Howard, is striking out on his own.

Maniyar, 41, will begin trading for his eponymous hedge fund firm on May 1, according to a person with knowledge of the matter. Maniyar Capital Advisors, a macro hedge fund, will manage more than $1 billion including money from Tudor Investment Corp., said the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is private.

A Tudor entity has taken a strategic stake in the investment firm, the person said.

Spokespeople for Tudor and London-based Maniyar Capital declined to comment.

Hedge fund startups with more than $1 billion in assets are becoming rarer as investors revolt against mediocre returns in the $3 trillion industry. More hedge funds have shuttered than started in each of the last five years, showing that only a handful of managers with a track record are able to attract investment.

Maniyar's plan for a stand-alone firm had been in the works for more than a year. The strategy will continue what he's been doing at Tudor since 2017, when the firm appointed him to lead what at the time was its only single-manager macro hedge fund."
