Orchard Capital Offers Equity Long/Short Fund

Jun 10 2010 | 9:56am ET

Stark Investments spin-off Orchard Capital Partners has launched an equity long/short fund.

The Hong Kong-based fund, which split from Stark in October, wasted little time after winning its independence to launch the Orchard Gemini Fund. The vehicle debuted in January, The Wall Street Journal reports, in response to investor demand for greater liquidity and single-strategy funds.

“Many investors were looking for greater transparency into the specific strategies of their managers,” Teall Edds, an Orchard partner, told the newspaper. “Having one big multi-strategy fund was not necessarily what many investors wanted.”

The new fund—which is up 5.3% since inception—is, like Orchard’s other funds, focused on Asia, investing in stocks and derivatives across the region, including in Japan and Australia.
