Mariner Investment Group launches Mariner Incubation Fund

Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York:

Mariner Investment Group is launching its own incubation fund. It will be a multi-strategy fund managed by a team of industry professionals. Managers working with Mariner on the fund will provide strategy-level expertise and can use the Mariner infrastructure to support or start their own standalone hedge funds. Eric Pellicciaro, former Head of Global Rates Investments at BlackRock, has joined Mariner to manage a global macro portfolio, called Alarium Mariner Global Macro LLC, within the new Mariner Incubation Fund.

"I've known Mariner for years, and they have a good reputation and are trusted in the marketplace," Pellicciaro told Opalesque.

The Mariner Incubation Fund, currently a fund-­‐of-­‐one, will fund established talent in areas that the firm considers investment opportunities and give Mariner a new, efficient structure for incubating new managers. Managers will oversee portfolios with initial investments ranging from $50m to $100m on behalf of the fund.

The Alarium Mariner portfolio will utilize a global macro strategy that draws on Pellicciaro’s 17 years of experience in fundamental macro and fixed income investment management. The investment approach couples fundamental research with systematic and quantitative methods across the broader G20 liquid market segments. In the future, Mariner also plans to launch the Alarium Global Macro Fund as a stand-­‐ alone fund to be managed by Pellicciaro.......................
