Former Goldman Prop Trader Plans Commodities Hedge Fund

133 fleet streetTaimur Hassan, who left Goldman Sachs as a Managing Director this past December, plans to launch a commodities hedge fund, Frere Hall Capital Management, in July or August 2012. The fund is named after a building in Hassan’s native Pakistan and will focus on energy.

Hassan graduated from Yale University in 2005 and began his career as an energy trader at Citadel Investment Group in London. He started at Goldman in 2008 as a vice president to create a proprietary trading desk in commodities. He was quickly promoted to managing director and led a team of 13 responsible for oil trading across Emea, until the prop trading desk was shut down to comply with the Volcker Rule.
