Now that things—especially of the subprime variety—have calmed down in the hedge fund world, listed vehicles seem to be falling over themselves to return to market.
The latest fund mulling a new share sale is Fauchier Partners’ Absolute Return Trust. In a note to the London Stock Exchange last week, London-based Fauchier said it was considering the new issuance to boost the £129 million (US$264.8 million) fund’s assets. The firm did not indicate how much it would seek to raise for the multi-strategy fund of funds.
This month, both Brevan Howard Asset Management and Thames River Capital have raised news funds for listed vehicles.
