BlueCrest Wins Camden Council Mandate

Apr 4 2012 | 2:23am ET

Two weeks after picking its first hedge fund manager, the London Borough of Camden's pension fund has finally made public the winner of the £50 million mandate.

The £994 million (US$1.59 billion) plan picked BlueCrest Capital Management from an initial list of 54 possible managers, Professional Pensions reports. The London-based firm topped four other finalists: Aurum Funds, Blackstone Group, Brevan Howard Asset Management and Prisma Capital Partners.

"BlueCrest's bid was very impressive, in a large and good quality field," Peter Brayshaw, the head of the Camden borough council's pension fund subcommittee, said. "I look forward to the benefits this new mandate will bring by diversifying the fund asset base in the current financial climate."
