Endurance FoFs Opens To Outside Investors

Jan 13 2006 | 8:32pm ET

Chicago-based Endurance Asset Management has just opened its flagship fund-of-funds to outside investors. Charlene Dow, managing director, said the Endurance Fund is now accepting money predominantly from family offices and high-net-worth individuals, but that the firm's risk and return parameters fit with what institutional investors are looking for, and Endurance will be targeting them once it has a longer track record.

The Endurance Fund, which currently has $30 million in assets under management, was launched in January 2004 with partner money. The fund invests with 16 managers and is around 25% macro, 30% long/short equity, 22% event driven and 22% strategic equity with a long-bias Asia.
