Thames River’s Hedge Funds Top US$1B

Jun 18 2007 | 10:49am ET

All is going swimmingly for Thames River Capital as far as its multi-manager hedge fund division is concerned: The firm recently reported that its hedge fund business surpassed $1 billion under management. Also, its flagship multi-manager fund, Thames River Warrior, returned 15.7% last year and is up 11.3% year to date through the end of May.

"With funds under management now in excess of US $1 billion, 2007 is proving an exciting year for Thames River’s multi-manager hedge division,” said Ken Kinsey-Quick, head of multi-manager at Thames River. “This latest milestone follows the recent appointment of Bill Muysken and the launch in April of the Thames River 2X Currency Alpha Fund."

Thames River was established in 1998 and together with its affiliate Nevsky Capital LLP manages over £5.5 billion (US$11 billion) as of the end of May.
