MainStay Investments said the funds are designed for small and medium-sized institutional investors. The vehicles, a master fund and a feeder fund, are subadvised by Richmond, Va.-based Private Advisors.
The Private Advisors Alternative Strategies Master Fund and its feeder invest in a variety of hedge fund strategies, including credit, event-driven, global macro, long/short equity and relative value.
