Former Goldman and Oracle stock pickers in new launch


Oracle alumni Alan Kessler, Jay Cross and Trish McKeon have teamed up with Nicholas Vita of Arx Investment Management to form a new healthcare venture.

This month, Argenis Capital Advisors will launch a long/short fund that will make investments across the capital structure of healthcare firms, focusing particularly on equity, fixed income and hybrid securities.

This combines high return equity targets with fundamental and event driven fixed-income opportunities to generate performance with muted volatility and downside protection.

Kessler, Vita and Cross met while working at Goldman Sachs.

At Argenis, each will cover his specialty area. Kessler is chief investment officer
