The former head of European equities at Carmignac, Muhammed Yesilhark, has launched his own investment boutique called Q2Q Capital, Citywire Selector can reveal.
According to Companies House filings, Yesilhark (pictured) established the company on June 6 and is listed as the chief investment officer.
It is understood the new venture will harness artificial intelligence for short-to-medium-term timeframe investments, which will also involve investing in crypto-currencies.
He had originally been hired from SAC Capital as part of sweeping changes within the unit at Carmignac, which saw Laurent Ducoin’s entire team leave the firm.
Yesilhark was approached for comment but had not responded at the time of publication.
