A murder hunt has been launched after a hedge fund founder was shot dead in his New York flat.

Police said Thomas Gilbert, 70, was shot in the head in his Manhattan apartment in Beekman Place on the city’s East Side. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mr Gilbert founded Wainscott Capital Partners Fund in 2011. The fund has 200 million dollars (£131m) in assets and focuses on the biotech and health care industries.

He previously co-founded Syzygy Therapeutics, a biotech asset acquisition fund.

The shooting is a rare act of violence in Beekman Place, a fashionable area just north of the United Nations headquarters.
