Former Goldman Partner Eisler Planning New $1B Macro Fund

Sep 9 2015 | 8:01pm ET

Former Goldman Sachs executive Edward Eisler is prepping a new macro fund for launch early next year. 

The new vehicle has reportedly already raised nearly $1 billion from a small number of institutional investors, according to the Wall Street Journal citing unnamed sources.

At that size, the new fund would likely be among the largest new launches of the year. It will operate under the banner of newly-formed Eisler Capital, which is based in London, and is expected to start trading early next year.

As a macro fund, it will make wagers on the direction of broad economic themes via a range of instruments, including bonds, currencies and other securities as necessary. 

Eisler left Goldman Sachs as a partner in 2012. He ran currency, interest rate and commodities trading for the firm before being named co-head of securities in 2008. 

Following his departure from Goldman, Eisler co-founded London-based DMC Partners, an emerging markets private equity firm, along with Sam Wisnia, Chris Barter, Philippe Costeletos and Ken Costa, but abandoned plans to launch its first fund in the fall of last year.
