In the week-ending March 2nd, 2012, it was reported that Vulpes had launched the Life Sciences Fund and is preparing to launch the Vulpes Agricultural Fund in the coming months. UBS AG's CIO for macro strategic trading in Australia, Gerard Satur, is preparing to spin out of the bank to start his own hedge fund MST Capital; Verrazzano Capital, the hedge fund manager set up in Paris last year by the former Gartmore star Guillaume Rambourg, is set to launch its first funds on Thursday, said an FT update; a long/short equity fund helmed by a pair from Kingdon Capital Management’s Asia portfolio and seeded by Samena Asia Managers (SAM) was launched on March 1st.

Henderson Group and Tantallon Capital are closing their Asia-based funds due to the tough capital-rising environment for Asia-based hedge funds; it was later reported that Henderson Group, the dual London and Sydney-listed fund manager, posted a bigger-than-estimated gain in full-year profit as management fees climbed after its purchase of Gartmore Group Ltd. Attara Capital, the hedge fund co-chaired and founded by Nat Rothschild, is to liquidate its operations, said the FT, as a result of adverse trading conditions and difficulty raising new money from investors.
