Thames River Real-Estate Fund Ready For Debut

Apr 7 2010 | 10:13am ET

Thames River Capital will launch its real-estate securities hedge fund on Friday.

The UCITS III-compliant vehicle, which Thames River announced in January, will be long-biased and will initially invest primarily in “core Europe,” with an eye towards the continent’s retail market. Co-managers James Wilkinson and Marcus Phayre-Mudge told the Financial Times that it would initially eschew the central London office market and British retail stocks.

“This flexibility means it is suited to the current market environment,” Wilkinson said. “We have demonstrable experience of managing the gross and net exposure.”

He added that—normally—gross exposure will be between 80% and 160%, with net exposure of between 60% and 140%.
