Weidenmiller readies global macro vehicle


Ryan Weidenmiller, the former head of Susquehanna International Group's private equity and venture capital business in China, is understood to have spun out under the Acacia Management name and is readying a global macro long/short hedge fund. Market sources say that Acacia's launch is expected to come towards the end of this year.

Acacia is understood to have commitments from an influential backer and Weidenmiller to have put together a core team with extensive risk controls, fundamentals-based financial analysis, operations and portfolio management skills.
