Macquarie Group To Provide Third-Party Hedge Fund Capital Raising

Feb 15 2012 | 11:26am ET

Are you a hedge fund manager with $500 million AUM, a three-year track record and an ultimate target of at least $1.5 million? If so, the Macquarie Group may be willing to help you raise capital.

The Australian-based financial services group plans to assist “three to five” hedge fund managers, initially, through its alternative investment strategies division.

“Our reputation and track record, coupled with our global reach and institutional infrastructure, makes our approach an attractive alternative to any top hedge fund manager looking to outsource fund raising,” said Jonathan Hall, managing director, Macquarie Funds Group. “This move presents a unique opportunity for high-quality hedge fund managers who are looking to grow their asset base to partner with a proven institution to achieve their goals.”

Macquarie’s AIS division has raised more than $3.1 billion for 10 different Macquarie strategies since 2005 and most recently raised over $1.5 billion in assets for Macquarie’s flagship Asian Alpha hedge fund. The AIS team, led by Jonathan Hall and Stephen Darke in New York, has established investor relationships globally and also works with affiliated managers to help raise investor capital.

With the aid of the Macquarie team, the successful hedge fund manager could tap into family offices, funds of funds, private banks, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, pensions, endowments and foundations. Capital raising efforts will be led in North America by Scott Brandewiede, in Europe by Mubin Sadikot and in Asia by Jennifer Page. 

Founded in 1969, Macquarie now employs more than 15,000 people in over 28 countries and, as of September 30, 2011, had assets under management of US$317 billion.
