Sam Barai, ex-managing director at the
Citigroup’s defunct $2.5 billion multi-strategy
hedge fund arm Tribeca Global Management, has
formed Barai Capital Management and launched
its maiden hedge fund, Barai Capital Master Fund,
earlier in April. Barai manages the long/short global TMT
strategy in New York. Calls to Barai were referred to
Jeffrey Wilkins, spokesman for the firm, who
confirmed the launch but declined to comment. Further details
about the strategy could not be learned by press time.
Before founding the firm in January, Barai spent three years
at Tribeca. Citigroup wound down the business late last year.
It could not be learned if Barai’s departure was
directly linked to Tribeca’s closing. Previously
Barai worked at Ziff Brothers Investments, the
multi-billion dollar investment fund of the Ziff family, from
August 1999-2005. Spokesmen from Citigroup and Ziff did not
return calls by press time.
