Kenneth Brody, the co-founder of $8.2 billion hedge fund firm Taconic Capital Advisors, plans to retire in January after nearly 15 years at the firm, according to a letter sent to investors Tuesday.
Brody, 70, will remain a principal and advisor to the multi-strategy and event-driven firm starting January 1. He will also remain a "significant" investor, according to the note.
Co-founder Frank Brosens will run the New York-based shop with chief investment officer Chris Delong. A spokeswoman for Taconic declined to comment.
