Brocker.Org: Former Goldman Sachs star to shutter Eton Park hedge fund immediately after dismal 12 months


Eric Mindich is shutting down his Eton Park Funds Management hedge fund.

Mr. Mindich, a former Goldman Sachs executive, sent a letter to buyers in the organization on Thursday stating that he would be returning money immediately after selecting to near functions. A copy of the letter was reviewed by The New York Moments.

Eton Park’s returns were being down about 10 % very last 12 months and are flat so much this 12 months. The organization sent out the letter immediately after notifying staff members previously Thursday of the choice to shut the organization which was started in 2004.

“Just lately, a mix of industry headwinds, a tough sector setting and, importantly, our personal disappointing 2016 results have challenged our means to go on to keep the scale and scope we feel necessary to go after our investment method steady with our founding rules,” Mr. Mindich wrote in the letter. “As liable stewards of your money, we have been unwilling to compromise on the business product and investment method in which you invested or the way in which we have pursued it.”

Mr. Mindich first produced his name as a fast-climbing star on Wall Avenue, heading up Goldman’s arbitrage desk at the age of 25. In 1994, just 27, he became Goldman’s youngest lover at any time.
