Opalesque Roundup: $1.85 trillion Japan behemoth to launch $1.5bn internal hedge fund: hedge fund news, week 23

Monday, June 11, 2018

In the week ending 19 January, 2018, Japan Post Bank is set to launch an in-house hedge fund later this year. The creation of the fund, targeted to raise US$1.5 billion, is a manifestation of a trend among Japan's institutional investment community to hunt for yield in the face of the country's ultralow interest rates, according to the Japanes Press.

The world's first tokenized hedge fund has launched on the Stellar Network blockchain; Tages Capital has partnered with Dalton Investments to launch the Tages Dalton Global Emerging Markets UCITS Fund; John Paulson is set to name a group of investors that will work together to try to drive better returns from gold mining companies; OppenheimerFunds has launched a private debt interval fund in partnership with US private equity firm Carlyle Group; Algebris Investments has started a doomsday fund; and 18-year-old Cole Mattox launched a hedge fund out of his bedroom in suburban Montclair, New Jersey.

Blue Sky Alternative Investments is shutting down its Blue Sky Alliance Fund as part of its company-wide review under interim boss Kim Morison.
