“We are excited to recognize his contributions to the firm and look forward to his continued leadership.”

Halifax also said it had promoted Davis Hostetter to principal. He previously worked at Hayman Capital and Diamond Castle Holdings.

The firm struck its $650m hard cap for the final close of its fourth flagship fund in 2017.
