Los Angeles-based hedge fund and asset management firm Oaktree Capital Management has raised a €3 billion ($3.9 billion) fund focused on taking control of distressed European companies through their debt or equity, reports Bloomberg.
Citing two people “with knowledge of the situation,” Bloomberg says Oaktree, which manages $75 billion, has raised 20% more than its initial €2.5 billion target for the European Principal Fund III and 76% more than it did in 2008 for a fund deploying a similar strategy.
Today, Oaktree has approximately 600 employees in Los Angeles (headquarters), New York, Stamford, Conn., Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Luxembourg, Paris, Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul, Singapore and Tokyo.
