Cleaves Asset Management founder Joakim Hannisdahl has left the hedge fund he started just over a year ago under the auspices of Cleaves Securities.

The analyst-turned-investor told TradeWinds he resigned his position at the firm “due to irreconcilable differences” between the Cleaves head office and himself.

“I have done my utmost to continue the fund as a going concern with me as the fund manager, but I have been unsuccessful in my efforts,” he said in a statement.
