Rising Star in Hedge Fund Galaxy Just 28 Years Old

September 26, 2016 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

At a time when many hedge fund firms are closing shop, it is noteworthy when a new one enters the marketplace. It is even more eye-catching when the founder is a mere 28 years old. Harvard Business graduate Jamie Sterne launched Skye Global Management with $75 million back in July, after doing a two-year stint at Dan Loeb’s Third Point as an equity analyst.

Sterne was previously employed by Greenmantle as a macroeconomic analyst, and at BeaconLight Capital as a long-short equity analyst.

In addition to his MBA, Sterne also has a degree in history from Harvard which he earned in 2010. His first job was at Maverick Capital of Lee Ainslie.

Most hedge funds are launched by managers with much more experience who are at least in their late 30s or early 40s. One other exception however is David Einhorn, who started his Greenlight Capital when he was only 27.
