Tudor hip hops back to sell side


Franz Tudor, a former healthcare analyst at Galleon, SAC, Pequot and a host of other firms, has resurfaced on the sell-side at independent research shop Variant Research, after a sabbatical during which he focused on running his own hip hop label with partner David "Ski" Willis.

As Tudor preps his initial sell-side ideas, one of his hip hop groups will launch their first single on Elektra Records this week.

Boca Raton-based Variant Research was started by Jeff Weiner, formerly with SAC and brother of SAC's John Weiner, and Farshid Tafazzoli, one of the co-founders of TradeStation Group Inc.,
