Thames River Capital is preparing to boost the assets in its publicly-traded hedge fund vehicle for the second time in the second half.
The £154 million Thames River Multi Hedge fund of funds had already doubled in size in July, raising £73 million in new assets. Thames River plans to issue between £50 million and £100 million in new shares, it told the London Stock Exchange yesterday.
