Former LTCM Managers Start Firm to Tap China Hedge-Fund Demand - Bloomberg Business

Former Long-Term Capital Management executives have started a firm that will connect Chinese investors with international hedge funds, as turmoil in the world’s second-largest equities market spurs demand for overseas assets.

John Meriwether is an early financial backer of Shanghai-based Sycamore Investment Services, said Chief Executive Officer Jeff Li, who formerly worked as a strategist at LTCM. Huang Chi-fu, who co-headed the Asia office of LTCM’s hedge fund that collapsed in 1998, is one of the founders of Sycamore and also an investor, Li said.
