Crispin Odey is a London-based hedge fund manager and founding partner of Odey Asset Management. He is generally known for his 'bearish outlook' on the markets.
Odey established Odey Asset Management in 1991 and ran the business until stepping down in November 2020. His net worth has been estimated at more than £1bn.
Before founding Odey, he managed the Baring European Growth Trust and Continental European pension funds at Barings Asset Management and Framlington Fund Managers.
