Chris Rokos booked profits of more than $4 billion during his decade as a trader at Brevan Howard Asset Management. After a three-year hiatus his new fund is about to test whether he’s retained the Midas touch.

The 44-year-old, who specializes in trading on general economic themes, has been converting his family office into a fully-fledged hedge fund since January. That’s when he and Brevan Howard settled a lawsuit Rokos had filed against the firm in 2014, which sought to void an agreement that restricted him from managing clients’ money until 2018.
