Hedge funds adopt a wait-and-see approach to compliance with regulation: hedge fund news, week 41

Monday, October 14, 2013

In the week ending 11 October, 2012, it was reported that hedge funds are adopting a wait-and-see approach to compliance with regulation due to the complexity of workload involved, according to Deutsche Bank's survey of European and US hedge fund managers.

MontLake, ML Capital’s UCITS-compliant funds platform, announced the launch of the FVC Alternative Risk Premia UCITS Fund, run by Future Value Capital; UK-based Ignis AM launched its latest absolute return strategy, the Ignis Global Macro Government Bond Fund, with £25m ($40m) seed money; Lone Pine Capital is launching Lone Tamarack, a long/short fund, in January’14; analyst Meredith Whitney is raising money for a new long/short equity hedge fund; and Orso Capital is to launch the Quadrant Plus Partners Strategy, an equity hedge fund.

Jeffrey Vinik, who shut his hedge fund earlier this year after returns slumped, is providing $20m in seed capital for an investment firm run by his former stock picker David Iben, said Bloomberg.
