Stephens leaves RS Investments for family affair


Paul Stephens, the co-founder of investment banking firm Robertson Stephens and of money manager RS Investments, is joining his two sons at their hedge fund firm, Stephens Investment Management. The firm, which was launched by Bart and Brad Stephens in 2002, runs a sub-microcap long/short equity fund.
