Ex-BlueCrest EM duo prepare for emerging markets macro launch


Former BlueCrest manager Nikos Makris is to launch a global macro fund out of his new firm Macro Synergy Partners (MSP) towards the end of the fourth quarter.

Makris was co-head of emerging markets at BlueCrest from 2004 to 2008, where he built a strong reputation for his relative value-based trading style.

The new firm will be co-headed by Robert Enserro who was previously head of business development for the BlueCrest emerging markets team.

The new fund will be an emerging markets-focused global macro fund ranging across all the different asset classes in the G20 markets.
