Tyrus Capital, a new hedge fund manager founded by Tony Chedraoui, has exceeded expectations by raising over $800 million in assets from investors. Initial investor subscription ended last Friday and the fund stands to raise an additional $300 million this month, according to an article from the Financial Times.

Many of Tyrus Capital’s investors are individual clients familiar with Mr. Chedraoui’s previous work at Deephaven Capital Management, where he was the head of global event-driven investments. Prior to Deephaven, he was a director of mergers and acquisitions at Lehman Brothers. Tyrus Capital employs specific event-driven strategies and invests in securities impacted by corporate events like mergers, changes in management, and other company announcements.
