White Peaks Plans Managed Accounts Platform

Sep 30 2010 | 12:51pm ET

Colorado hedge fund White Peaks Asset Management is preparing to roll out a separately-managed accounts platform by the end of the year.

The new Clear Edge Separately Account Platform is expected to launch in the fourth quarter, HFMWeek reports. The platform has been seeded with $75 million by a family office and an institutional investor, and should have between 12 and 18 managed accounts by January.

“In the post-Madoff world, investors are demanding more liquid and transparent strategies and they also desire to own their own securities versus owning the limited partnership of a hedge fund,” White Peaks’ Charles Bernard said.

The new platform will focus on long/short equity strategies, especially those with low leverage and low exposure.
