‘Revolutionary’ Approach To Funds Of Funds

Jan 19 2011 | 4:54am ET

With five successful years under its belt, Attucks Asset Management is launching a fund of hedge funds based on a separate account it runs for an institutional investor.

The multistrategy vehicle is the first of Attucks’ Revolution Funds, which the firm hopes to build into a fund of funds family. Eventually, Attucks plans to offer single strategy funds of funds, but will initially focus on commingled and customized managed accounts based on its multistrategy portfolio, Pensions & Investments reports.

Attucks, which has $1.8 billion in assets under management, will use Riverside Portfolio Management’s platform for the Revolution Funds. A minority- and woman-owned firm, Attucks already favors many similarly minority- and woman-owned funds on Riverside’s platform.
