Former Moore exec Skopkorn lines up solo launch


Stanley Shopkorn, the former head of equities trading at Moore Capital Management, is reportedly gearing up to launch his own operation this fall, under the moniker Hilltop Park.

Shopkorn, who left Moore in 2002 after six years with the firm, has been managing money for wealthy individuals since his departure.

With plans for an October launch, Shopkorn is said to be actively staffing up his new venture and has reportedly brought in Douglas Day, a former Moore Capital colleague, to help co-manage the fund. —BET
