Pamplona Adds Real Estate, Energy/Transport Hedge Funds

Nov 12 2007 | 10:32am ET

Pamplona Capital Management is beefing up its lineup, launching a real estate fund of hedge funds and is taking over an energy and transportation fund.

The $3.5 billion London-based firm on Nov.1 launched the Pamplona Real Estate and Infrastructure Fund of Funds with $30 million. The fund aims to provide investors with exposure to the developed and emerging markets in the real estate and infrastructure sectors, and will target annual returns of between 15% and 20% with a targeted volatility of less than 8%.

“The real estate and infrastructure fund of funds is the second niche fund of hedge funds product to be offered by Pamplona,” said Alex Knaster, Pamplona’s CEO. “As with the Emerging Market Fund of Funds, Pamplona REIF offers investors the ability to gain exposure to strong global trends and leverages off our internal experience and expertise.”

John Halsted, managing partner of Pamplona’s Private Equity business, will join Pamplona REIF’s investment committee.

Pamplona is also adding an energy and transportation hedge fund, formerly managed by Langlade Capital Management. The firm said that Lars Titland, a former partner at Langlade, is joining next month to manage the rechristened Pamplona Energy and Transportation Global Fund. In addition, Langlade founder Francois Langlade-Demoyen will join the firm in January, as a partner and the chief investment officer of Pamplona’s fund of hedge funds business. Demoyen will report to Nick Gordon Smith, managing partner of the firm’s fund of hedge fund unit.
