Cryptocurrency hedge fund Tyr Capital has appointed Olivier Trombert as CEO. The residing CEO, Nick Norris, will take over the operational side of the business as Chief Operating Officer (COO), following the launch of Tyr Capital’s new venture fund last month.
In 2007, Trombert joined Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) to develop the energy trading in EMEA and US regions. Over a three-year period, he developed SCB’s customer base, extending the range of energy products and active proprietary trading. In 2010, Olivier moved to Oaktree Partners, managing one of its largest energy options trading books. Before joining TYR Capital, he co-managed Dandi Space GBP200 million property portfolio in London.
Trombert graduated from Neoma Business School in 1995. He holds a master’s degree in finance and econometrics.
The appointment follows the company’s recent launch of its new fund, Tyr Capital Venture.
