Greg Coffey, one of the hedge-fund industry’s most famous macro traders, is starting a long-only business and tapped JPMorgan Asset Management’s Diana Amoa to lead it.

Amoa, who spent six years at JPMorgan focused on currency and rates trading, will join Coffey’s Kirkoswald Capital Partners as the chief investment officer of long-biased strategies, according to an investor update seen by Bloomberg. Her first fund will focus on emerging markets, her long-time specialty.
