Breakdown Insurer Breaks Up With Blackstone

Sep 30 2010 | 10:18am ET

RAC offers breakdown coverage to British drivers. No word on whether its pension fund insured its relationship with its fund of funds manager, which has clearly broken down.

The £900 million RAC Pension Scheme has fired its only hedge fund manager, Blackstone Alternative Asset Management. The plan said it made the move to “de-risk” its portfolio, HFMWeek reports, and that it has no plan to invest in another hedge fund or fund of hedge funds.

Instead, it has moved the 5% of its assets managed by Blackstone to a liability-driven strategy run by Aviva Investors.

The RAC pension had invested with Blackstone since 2007.
