Bharat Capital has launched a pair of managed account strategies with impressive returns.
The New York-based hedge fund's Special Situations Strategy is up 51.3% and its Liquid Credit Strategy 16.91%, HFMWeek reports. The former rose 2.9% last month and the latter 0.51%.
"It's a good time to invest because fewer analysts are covering small and mid-sized event-driven securities," Sanjay Nayar, who founded Bharat two years ago, told HFM.
Bharat is targeting family offices and high-net worth individuals with the new products. The firm hopes to raise $500 million for the credit strategy and $200 million for the special situations strategy.
Both charge 30% for performance and no management fee.
