Billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen can start taking outside money again

Billionaire hedge fund manager Steve Cohen has a new firm that’s allowed to raise outside capital.

Cohen indirectly owns “more than 25%” of the newly-launched Stamford Harbour Capital and will not supervise anyone working on behalf of it, according to a regulatory filing.

Cohen in January was barred by the SEC from supervising funds that manage outside money until 2018.

The ban was to settle charges for failing to supervise a former portfolio manager who engaged in insider trading at SAC Capital, Cohen’s former hedge fund.

SAC pleaded guilty to securities fraud in 2013 and paid a $1.8 billion fine. Cohen, who wasn’t charged, returned SAC’s outside capital and transformed it into his family office, Point72 Asset Management.

Bloomberg’s Miles Weiss first reported the new firm.
