25-year old David “Josh” Hawes is marketing a new Tampa-based hedge fund, Epinicia, using an interesting tactic.He’s telling potential investors that he was mentored by a “prominent portfolio manager,” whom he can’t reveal because he “isn’t at liberty to,” according to Hedge Fund Alert.
Hawes says he’s launching the fund with Robert Curtis, whom he calls a “veteran of the real estate market,” and that they’ve raised $20 million, some of which came from an institutional investor.
From Hedge-Fund Alert:
Hawes, whose brief resume includes an internship at Morgan Stanley, founded his Tampa firm with operations chief Robert Curtis, a veteran of the real estate market.
Hawes is telling investors that he was mentored by a prominent portfolio manager whom he is not at liberty to identify.
By the way, Epinicia is just one of the many weird hedge funds to launch in the past year >
