I had had a long and successful career as a hedge fund PM. Retired five years ago. I have continued to trade my PM, and I am current on my specialties. My problem is that my Rolodex is stale. Does anyone have ideas of where I should start?

hey sorry i got messed up. i confused you and OP. thought you were the HF manager OP and ozgood-zbeard was the random person asking for CV.

apologies ignore my post. (although the advice should be heeded in general imo about sending out CVs to others without some assurance about them)

havent read your AMA but did see it - sorry didnt make the association. im not on this site often so i only recognize a few certified users.

please dont take offence.

how would you classify yourself/your strategy? US equity long/short? Global Macro? Interest Rates RV, etc..?

just google it...you're welcome

Do you have your track?
What strategy?
Where are you based?

Contact a prime brokerage, this is exactly what the cap intro / hedge fund consulting type function is for.

If you still don't know who to contact, PM me. I'm in such a team.

how is your rolodex stale after 5 years? don't you have LinkedIn? I'd reach out that way. I have a hard time believing 5 years is enough for you to completely lose touch with your entire professional network.

It's more likely than you might think. Imagine he spent 5-10 years at that firm and did little to build his network outside the firm during that time. If he left 5 years ago, then he might not have been building new contacts outside his firm for 10-15 years. That's a long time.

Why do you want to come back? The PMs I know that have retired have mostly left the game altogether and moved onto non-finance related ventures.

You should be answering the questions not asking them big guy

I headed a region in cap intro at a BB ibank.
Happy to share.
Feel free to PM me, and we can go from there.

why do you want to get back in, and why is just managing your own money not enough of a challenge / fun?

I would pony up the cash to take your rolodex on a trip to this place:

That should break the ice.
