|On New Year’s Eve S. Donald Sussman’s landscaper was found in a home on Sussman’s Greenwich Estate having apparently stabbed his daughter to death. Adam Dobrzanski had also attempted to take his own life with a knife, but the police arrived in time to transport him to the hospital. Mrs. Dobrzanski, the wife and Sussman’s personal chef, was with the Sussman family in the U.S. Virgin Islands at the time of the tragedy. |
S. Donald Sussman founded the Paloma Funds in 1981. The firm’s multi-strategy hedge funds employ various quantitative, relative value and computerized statistical arbitrage strategies.
According to Teri Buhl, the Paloma’s main fund was up 20% in 2009 and has had an average annualized return since inception of over 20%. In her Greenwich Time article, Ms. Buhl also reported that Sussman's fund has incubated several hedge fund trading legends, “such as David Shaw of D.E. Shaw; Dan Arbess, who runs Perella Weinberg's Xerion Fund; Bruce Kover of Caxton Associates; Richard Perry of Perry Capital; and Dan Och of Och-Ziff.”
