Tadashi Mukai, who outperformed all his hedge fund rivals in Japan last year, joined Tokyo-based Epic Partners Investments Co. and will start a new fund that won’t bet on stocks rising or falling.

Mukai, 43, joined Epic on Aug. 20 as a senior fund manager, said Tetsuya Abe, the firm’s head of compliance, in a telephone interview.
