Spartan Launches Canadian Micro-, Small-Cap Fund

Nov 27 2012 | 11:49am ET

A Canadian hedge fund has launched a new strategy investing in that country's smallest companies.

Toronto-based Spartan Fund Management's Teraz Fund focuses on Canadian small- and micro-cap companies. The new vehicle features three portfolios. The first invests in early-stage companies, the second focuses on opportunistic investing and the third shorts companies suspected of fraud, bad management or over-promotion.

No name will make up more than 5% of the fund's overall portfolio. It will avoid private companies and use no leverage.
