Epsilon Names Soderstrom As Partner
Epsilon Asset Management LLC (“Epsilon”) names Charles “Chuck” Soderstrom as COO and Partner of the firm. “Mr. Soderstrom’s decades of operational experience strengthens the foundation needed to grow Epsilon while providing world class infrastructure and service to our expanding client base,” says Adam Lavin, Partner at Epsilon.
Starting in 2005, Mr. Soderstrom served as a Managing Director and Head of Operations for Impala Asset Management, a multi-billion dollar long/short equity hedge fund. Prior to Impala, he was a Senior Managing Director at Bear Stearns. In 2000, he co-founded and managed Buena Vista Partners, a long/short equity hedge fund. Prior to Buena Vista, Mr. Soderstrom was a Managing Director at JP Morgan Securities, where he helped build and ultimately ran their 300+ person U.S. Institutional Equities business overseeing sales, trading, and research. From 1987-1991, Mr. Soderstrom worked for Salomon Brothers.
Says Mr. Soderstrom, “Over the last few years, I interacted with Adam, Faryan, and Michael as a client and investor in their prior firm, Novus Partners. I have an intimate appreciation for the methodology that the Epsilon team honed during their time working together. I am excited to be a formal part of a team that is pioneering the analysis of holdings data to generate signals predictive of future alpha. Epsilon’s ability to deliver this in a liquid, transparent and low-cost framework is a concept which I am confident will be well received by savvy asset allocators.”
