According to charges announced by the Justice Department last week, Mr. Caspersen, who hails from a well-connected Wall Street family, contacted an unidentified hedge-fund employee saying he was looking to raise money for a new investment.
The complaint identified the employee only as Individual-1, but people familiar with the matter confirmed it was James McIntyre, who attended Princeton University at the same time as the 39-year-old Mr. Caspersen and works at hedge fund Moore Capital. Their wives also attended Princeton.
