FH International A.M. launches U.S. feeder to emerging market short term debt hedge fund

Friday, April 13, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - FH International Asset Management LLC has launched the FH Emerging Markets Short Term Debt Fund LP, a Delaware-domiciled feeder to the Master Fund for qualified domestic/taxable investors, effective April 1, 2012.

FH International Asset Management LLC is the advisor to FH Emerging Markets Short Term Debt Master Fund, L.P. and its tax-exempt/offshore feeder, FH Emerging Markets Short Term Debt Fund, LTD, since their launch in November 2010.

“Superior growth and solid fiscal performance in emerging market countries, as well as high demand for income generating products, have made emerging market debt an attractive asset class for investors,” Steven Landis, the hedge fund’s portfolio manager and a Managing Director at FH International Asset Management, said.

“We think this will be an exciting alternative for investors who are seeking yield from short duration investment funds and want to gain exposure to emerging market debt, recently one of the fastest growing and best performing asset classes.” Landis said.

Steven Landis has over 25 years of experience in fixed income markets and has been at FH International since 2000. He is currently part of the team that manages the FH Emerging Market Debt Fund and the Nordic Fund for Emerging Market Debt.

Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas.is the custodian for FH Emerging Markets Short Term Debt Master Fund L.P.
