At a conference in Monaco, BlackRock hedge fund chief Howard Berkowitz said his firm will take small stakes in young hedge funds “to be on the ground floor and be able to get a great rate of return.”

Hedge funds have reportedly raised some $10 billion over the past year by selling stakes in their firms.
