Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Stockholm-based fund boutique Tidan Capital has announced the appointment of Stuart Abel as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO). Abel, a seasoned professional in hedge fund management and operations, previously served as the COO for the Swedish systematic hedge fund manager, IPM Informed Portfolio Management.

With a career spanning almost two decades, Stuart Abel joins Tidan Capital from Brummer & Partners. He oversaw operations for an internal team at Brummer Multi-Strategy running an equity long/short technology strategy. Abel also co-founded Krma Capital, a systematic high-frequency hedge fund operating in Stockholm and London, following the closure of IPM in 2021. His six-year tenure at IPM, which used to manage close to $6 billion in its flagship macro strategy, saw him in various roles such as deputy COO, Head of Operations, and ultimately Chief Operating Officer.

“His deep understanding of the financial industry and his notable ability to drive strategic initiatives and complex projects make him the ideal choice for Tidan as we navigate our next phase of growth and innovation.”
