MST Capital, the hedge fund that spun-off from UBS last year, has raised A$10 million (US$9.1 million) for a new global macro fund.
The Baruch Global Macro Fund debuted today. The new vehicle will employ the same strategy as that used by MST’s existing fund, which manages A$175 million for a primarily institutional client base. By contrast, the new fund is made up of capital from high net-worth investors, Bloomberg News reports, mainly Australians.
“The retail landscape is very complicated and people who do it well, do it with an army of people reaching out to financial planners,” MST’s Mark Levinson told Bloomberg. “We don’t have an army. We have chosen to work with certain high net-worth individuals that can reach into their network and understand what we are doing.”
Sydney, Australia-based MST invests in a wide array of asset classes, including equities, credit, foreign exchange, interest rates and commodities. The firm focuses on the Asia-Pacific region.
MST has returned a net 6.5% over the past nine months, and targets annual returns of 10% to 15%. The firm is led by Gerard Satur, former head of macro strategic trading at UBS.
