Star manager Stephen Diggle’s much anticipated comeback vehicle, Vulpes, is evolving from being a family office to a comprehensive hedge fund and alternative investments platform, covering multiple asset classes and offering products ranging from a new volatility fund to a global diversified fund focused on agricultural entrepreneurship and biotechnology.

Renamed Vulpes Investment Management, the firm goes live today (April 1, 2011), and will be overseen by a four-person executive committee, which will include a newly appointed chief risk officer, Bert Verdicchio.

The CRO is a new position with considerable independence, created by Diggle
