Robert Charles Gibbins
Robert Charles Gibbins is the founder and chief investment officer of Autonomy Capital, a New York City hedge fund that has been called "one of the top-performing hedge funds of 2018." Before founding Autonomy Capital in 2003, Gibbins was head of emerging markets and macro proprietary trading at Lehman Brothers.
In 2017 Gibbins made the news when he was sued by his former extra-marital lover Aline Marie Massel, a former beauty queen and model. Massel's claims were rejected as "not credible" by a British judge, and her subsequent New York-based lawsuit was dismissed in November 2018. A London court also found that Massel lied to and defrauded Gibbins in her attempts to extort him.
