New York-based hedge fund Karsch Capital Management is launching a distressed-debt hedge fund.
The firm, which focuses on long/short equity strategies, plans to launch the fund in the second quarter, HedgeFund.net reports. The firm has hired Davidson Kempner Capital Management’s James Donath to manage the new vehicle. Donath joined the $3 billion firm in November.

Karsch will charge 1.5% for management and 20% for performance. There is a $1 million minimum investment.
