Former IMF Boss Strauss-Khan Aims to Grow Hedge Fund

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former IMF managing director, is targeting to raise US$ 2 billion for his macro hedge fund from a variety of investors including sovereign wealth funds. He is chairman of Leyne Strauss Kahn & Partners SA (LSK & Partners) and has launched the DSK Global Investment Fund. Strauss-Kahn picked up Mohamed Zeidan as the firm’s chief operating officer.

LSK & Partners’ CEO Thierry Leyne stated in a press release, “The assets that will be allocated in the Fund will be based on the expression of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s comprehensive economic predictions of global trends in bond markets, equity markets, commodity markets, Forex, alternative, cash, and other exchanges.”

Professor Vanessa Strauss-Kahn, the daughter of Dominique Strauss-Kahn, will be leading the economic research unit at the firm.
