Few in the hedge fund industry have been more successful in identifying and nurturing talented traders than Elaine Crocker. First at Commodities Corporation and then at Moore Capital, she helped launch the careers of such legendary traders as Paul Tudor Jones, Bruce Kovner, Louis Bacon, Salem Abraham and Monroe Trout. She joined Commodities Corporation in 1970 and eventually rose to executive vice president. Her responsibilities included the planning, selection and development of the firm’s trading and research activities as well as portfolio selection for internal capital and managed fund products. During her time at the firm, she funded well over 100 participants in a program designed to find and evaluate commodity trading advisors. She then joined Louis Bacon at Moore Capital in 1995 and helped him build it into one of the world’s largest and most successful hedge funds. She is currently the president of Moore Capital and a member of its board of directors and its investment advisory committee.
