Top hedge fund spin-offs YTD launch with over $7 billion in assets
|August 1st, 2010||
|HedgeTracker recently analyzed the year-to-date six largest independent hedge fund launches of 2010, which all together raised $720 million in assets under management (AUM). Now the focus has shifted to a section of new launches that was excluded from the previous report, new hedge fund firms that were created either via spin-offs or mergers of existing firms. The top five such firms of 2010 year-to-date have raised significantly more than $720 million for their launches, combining for an estimated total of over $7 billion.|
The largest new hedge fund firm on the list will not officially launch until the fourth quarter of 2010. The new firm, Foxley Asset Management, will be formed by combining four yet to be named existing independent hedge fund managers. Foxley Asset Management, which plans to launch with $2.5-$3.5 billion in assets under management, was formed by Paul Hamill, the former Chief Operations Officer of Citadel Investment Group, and Grant Thompson, formerly the co-CEO of CQS Management.
