Hugh Hendry is an award-winning hedge fund manager, market commentator, and thought leader known for his contrarian approach to investing. His prescience in anticipating the Great Financial Crisis of 2008 earned him a reputation as a prophetic iconoclast. Hendry was the Founding Partner and Chief Investment Officer of the now defunct Eclectica Asset Management, a global macro hedge fund purchased out of Odey Asset Management. In September 2017, Hendry stunned the world when, out of the blue, he shut down his hedge fund Eclectica. He is now influencing a new generation of market makers with his successful podcast, viral social media posts, and appearances on various influential financial media outlets. He resides in St. Barts, where he is a leading investor in luxury real estate and an avid surfer.
