Convertible Hedge Associates

Convertible Hedge Associates was an early alternative investment management company founded by Edward O. Thorp and a partner, Jay Regan, in November 1969. Based in Long Beach, CHA was said by Thorp to have been the first market-neutral hedge fund. In 1974 it was renamed as Princeton/Newport Partners.
