Thursday, October 03, 2013

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva:

Pictet Asset Management (Switzerland), Reservoir Capital Group (USA) and Three Bridges Capital (USA) recently joined the Hedge Fund Standards Board as signatory members, according to the latter’s September newsletter. And Reservoir Capital also became a Core Supporter.

Furthermore, the HFSB re-launched its website, which now has a search function allowing one to look for HSBC’s signatories on the basis of their strategy and region. Search for example for Relative Value hedge funders based in the UK, and you will find CQS, Observatory Capital Management and Polygon Global Partners.

The HFSB is a standard setting body for the hedge fund industry and custodian of the Hedge Fund Standards.The London-based body was started in 2007. Up until now, 106 hedge fund managers have committed to the Standards, accounting for over $485bn in AuM, and 60 investors have committed to the HFSB Investor Chapter.
