Senrigan Capital Group, a Hong Kong-based hedge fund founded by former Citadel managing director Nick Taylor, hit $1 billon AUM, according to FinAlt.

Senrigan “became one of the first Asia-focused hedge fund startups since 2009 to reach $1 billion in assets,” Bloomberg reported.

The event-driven hedge fund was seeded by Blackstone (which invested $150 million) and launched with approximately $220 million in assets.

Since inception, Senrigan has returned more than 9%.

Taylor was only with Citadel for half a year. He left when the hedge fund slashed its headcount in Asia.

Prior to Citadel, Taylor managed Modal Capital Partners, which is one of Credit Suisse’s in-house hedge funds. He was with the bank for 10 years.
