ABS Investment Management to launch an emerging markets equity long/short fund of hedge funds

Monday, July 02, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - ABS Investment Management LLC, the Global Equity Long/Short Fund of Hedge Funds manager with over $3.75 billion under management, announces today the launch of their first commingled emerging markets equity long/short fund of hedge fund product.

Founding principal Alain De Coster said, ‘The fund will be a long biased emerging markets FoHF that is expected to have 50-75% net exposure to emerging market equities. The product will benefit from the firm’s long term global focus. Our team has been investing in emerging markets since 1994 and today over 20% of ABS’s AUM are invested in emerging markets via our flagship products and an emerging markets separate account that we have been managing since 2005. We believe this product will be viewed as a lower volatility alternative to long only emerging market investments.’
