Aug 16 2011 | 2:55pm ET

Hedge fund seeder IMQubator will fully invest its €250 million seeding platform by the end of the year.

The Dutch seeder has already invested €200 million in eight funds and will pick two more by the end of the year, Opalesque reports. The platform's manager, IMQ Investment Management, is receiving three to four applications per week, founder Jeroen Tielman said.

Funds already seeded by the firm include Branta Solutions Fund; HPE Pro Institutional Fund; Callanish Global Macro Fund; Cavenagh Asia Fund; mCAPITAL Special Situations Fund; Boston and Alexander Fund; and Charity & Investment Merger Arbitrage Fund.

IMQubator itself was seeded by Dutch pension fund APB.

"Their investment in the seeding platform was conditional on my setting up a strong team," Tielman said.
