Ex-Viking CIO Daniel Sundheim Plans to Start Equity Hedge Fund

  • Potential investors said to reach out, expressing interest
  • Sundheim will initially manage his own money in family office

Daniel Sundheim, the former chief investment officer at Viking Global Investors, is planning to start an equity hedge fund in the second half of 2018, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Sundheim will manage his own money in a family office until the fund launches, said the person who asked not to be identified since the matter is not public. Potential investors have reached out to the manager, expressing interest in a fund, the person said. Sundheim, who left Viking last week, will soon begin building his team.
