Channel Capital launches event driven high yield fund

Wednesday, October 23, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Channel Capital Advisors LLP announced the launch of its high yield catalyst fund which began trading at the beginning of this month. The fund seeks to generate 10% -12% net returns with low volatility and little correlation to the major markets.

The fund invests mainly in liquid bonds, equity and CDS. The strategy seeks to identify mispriced corporate debt where a catalyst will drive price realignment and profit realization.

The fund is managed by Peter Bakker, former high yield portfolio manager at Lazard and SGS, and Frits Lieuw-kie-song, former high yield portfolio manager at LKS and SGS. “We are both delighted to be back working together at an interesting time in the credit markets.” said Frits, “and we are both very excited to bring our strategy to Channel given their track record in corporate credit and the stability of the management platform.”

“We feel Frits and Peter have the talent, focus and discipline to maximise this investment opportunity.” said Walter Gontarek, Chief Executive of Channel. “Their pedigree is a complement to our own credit expertise and their return profile has little correlation to traditional credit market indices.”

The launch of this fund marks an important new initiative for Channel, which provides risk oversight, operational support and initial capital for the new strategy.
