Financial modeling

Arpad Busson helped launch the careers of hedge fund legends Paul Tudor Jones and Louis Bacon.

But at industry dinners and charity events, the Swiss-based Busson draws a crowd for something besides his talent for marketing hedge funds: His girlfriend is supermodel Elle Macpherson, a.k.a. “the Body.” Says one hedge fund manager, “People want to meet Elle.” Macpherson may be spending time on the hedge fund circuit for years to come. Last month news leaked that Macpherson and Busson, longtime companions and the parents of a four-year-old son, are engaged. No date has been set for a wedding that should attract its share of hedge fund royalty. Busson could not be reached for comment.
