Honne Seeks Investors For $50M Event-Driven Fund

Mar 15 2012 | 2:38am ET

New York hedge fund Honne has opened its first hedge fund to outside investors for the first time.

The event-driven shop launched its eponymous hedge fund in August, HFMWeek reports. Now, it is looking to high net-worth investors and asset allocators new to hedge funds to help it reach its initial capacity of $50 million.

Honne targets companies emerging from bankruptcy or undergoing a management shift. "We are buying things that are not part of indices," founder and portfolio manager Derek Cheung told HFM. "Avoiding these investments and focusing on small niche areas—that is where our edge is."

Cheung formerly worked as a retail broker at John Thomas Financial.
