Origami Capital has bought $92 million of the $230 million in stakes in the CPIM Structured Credit funds, Hedge Fund Alert reports. The Chicago-based firm, which seeks to buy up shares in illiquid hedge funds on the secondary market, originally sought to buy all of the remaining investments in the funds, which are being liquidated, settling for 40% of them.
