Unfounded Rumor Of The Early Afternoon: Absentee Father Founder At AQR?

Given that we are fully supportive of the Taking It Easy lifestyle, we relay the following without judgment, and perhaps even with a bit of "break me off a piece of that."

One of AQR's founding partners, Robert Krail, has been completely absent from the firm for almost three years now. He moved out to Hollywood and bought a $20mm house. Arguably, this is in violation of the key personnel provision in most of the firm's investors' offering memorandum. If anyone is trying to get out of the lockup they could use that.
