Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Sean George is leaving his role as a portfolio manager at hedge fund behemoth Millennium to embark on a new sell-side journey at another industry giant. George founded and co-managed a credit-focused hedge fund out of Sweden before joining Millennium in mid-2021. His hedge fund, Hamiltonian Global Credit Opportunities, was closed down following his decision to leave Sweden to join Millennium, several months after reaching $100 million under management.
George was part of the portfolio management team at Grace Court Capital, a credit-focused division at Millennium Capital Partners. “My last day working at Millennium. Working at Millennium has been an amazing experience and quite frankly a privilege,” George announces on LinkedIn. “Leaving was a very hard decision as I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Millennium team.”

Before joining Millennium in June of 2021, George co-managed the Hamiltonian Global Credit Opportunities Fund (Hamiltonian GCO) as chief investment officer of Strukturinvest Fondkommission – now Strivo. George, who grew up in the Caribbean before moving to Sweden at the age of 12, embarked on his international career in 1996. After about 20 years of working overseas, he moved back to Stockholm to be closer to his daughter. Before launching Hamiltonian GCO in Sweden, Sean George headed trading desks for Credit Default Swaps (CDSs) at Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, and Jefferies.
George has joined J.P. Morgan in high-yield credit trading. “As I embark on an exciting new journey with another industry giant – this time on the sell-side – I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire Millennium team for giving me a great experience these past two years,” writes George. “As always I appreciate the opportunities that the industry has shown me and I am certainly enjoying the ride.”
