Bahrain Sovereign Fund Mulls Hedge Funds

Mar 25 2010 | 12:16pm ET

Bahrain’s sovereign wealth fund may make its maiden investment in hedge funds next year.

“Yes, we are looking at potentially investing in hedge funds in the future,” Hani  Redha, investment manager at the US$14 billion Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Co., told HFMWeek. “It won’t happen this year, but the following year is a possibility.”

Redha said the sovereign fund was seeking to diversify its potfolio. He added that a hedge fund investment would be its first foray into alternative investments of any kind.

BMH has not decided how much to allocate to the asset class.
