Steve Kahn
Head of Operations at Talpion Fund Management


Stephen Kahn joined Talpion Fund Management in April 2010. Talpion is a single family office which also previously launched a hedge fund in 2011, and subsequently closed in order to start a seeding platform. Talpion seeded its first and currently, its only, seed arrangement in March of 2013. As part of that arrangement, Talpion provided all the operational support and infrastructure for the fund. The family office manages its own assets in house and allocates to other hedge funds as well.

His experience working with Hedge Funds started in 2000 at DLJ/Pershing, holding positions in Sales, Relationship Management and eventually responsible for Operations. In 2003 he moved to Barclays Capital to manage the Equity Prime Brokerage Operations group. In 2007, he joined Carlyle Blue-Wave, a multi-strategy start-up hedge fund in New York, as the manager of operations and then in November of 2008, joined Raptor Capital Management, a hedge fund spin out from under Tudor Management, where he was the Director of Operations.

Steve graduated Emory University in 1989 with a BBA in Management and received his MBA in Finance from Emory’s Business School in 1993.
