Rock Ridge looks to hire


Rock Ridge Advisors, the Greenwich, Conn.-based quantitatively oriented macro shop, is looking to hire analysts, traders and operations staff. The firm, as expected, has more than doubled its assets under management in the past two months and needs additional staffers to support its expansion.

The firm, which held $100 million in early July, has increased assets to more than $260 million on the back of solid performance. The firm's flagship fund was up 6.5% net of fees for the year as of August 31. Rock Ridge is targeting a soft close once it reaches $500 million.
