‘Superwoman’ On The Cheap

Jun 15 2007 | 10:45am ET

Nicola Horlick, the hedge fund manager dubbed “Superwoman” by the London tabloids, is making herself super-accessible. The famed manager’s new Bramdean Alternatives Limited, set to list on the London Stock Exchange, will be open to investors with as little as £1,000 to spare.

“Private [retail] investors very rarely get the opportunity to invest into private equity or hedge funds,” said Clem Chambers, CEO of All IPO, the retail platform featuring Horlick’s new fund. “The subscription level of Bramdean Alternatives Limited ensures a low barrier to entry and means that all comers can have exposure to a range of alternative investments.”

The £250 million fund will invest in an array of alternative vehicles, including p.e., hedge funds, real estate and renewable energies.

Interested investors can find the fund’s prospectus on All IPO’s Web site and can place orders until June 29.
