Stamford, Connecticut-based hedge fund EQA Partners announced on Tuesday that former Federal Reserve governor Randall Kroszner will join the $56 million currency and macro hedge fund.

Dr. Kroszner will offer advice on currency and macroeconomic investments, become a partner of the fund, and will fill the recently created job of chief economist at the fund.

"Randy's valuable not only because of his macroeconomic insights, but also because of his government experience. During the financial crisis, he had a behind-closed-door view of policy making. As the debate in Europe continues, Randy will be helpful in interpreting policy makers' decisions and in translating their pronouncements," said Andrew Alper, EQA Partners' chairman and chief executive.

Dr. Kroszner headed the Committee on Supervision and Regulation and was on the Committee on Consumer Affairs while he was governor of the Fed between 2006 and 2009. Before taking the Fed job he worked on the Council of Economic Advisers under President George W. Bush, from 2001 until 2003.
