Incapture Investments is set to launch its maiden hedge fund a year after it was set up by former Barclays Global Investors fixed-income chief Peter Knez.
The New York- and San Francisco-based firm’s Alpha Capture is expected as soon as the second half of the year, AsianInvestor reports. The systematic long/short fund aims to play in every securities and derivatives market in the world.
To that end, Incapture plans to establish a base in the Asia-Pacific region. Sydney is seen as the most likely location, according to AI, although the firm may consider other locations, including Asia’s hedge-fund capitals, Hong Kong and Singapore. In Asia, Incapture hopes to build a staff of portfolio managers, analysts and technology specialists.
Incapture also recently named Will Britten chief operating officer, based in San Francisco. Britten is a co-founder of Australia’s Akindred, with which Incapture has a partnership. Prior to starting Akindred, Britten worked at Credit Suisse.
