The Carlyle Group’s first hedge fund had been disappointing from the start, but it wasn’t until October that disappointment turned into disaster.
Carlyle-Blue Wave Management Partners lost 9.5% that month due to bad bets in the structured credit market, Bloomberg News reports. Until that point, the fund, which debuted in the spring, had simply failed to raise the $1 billion expected and had posted lackluster year-to-date returns of 0.2%.
The troubles have reportedly led to major redemption requests at the $690 million multi-strategy fund, but requests for Jan. 1—which were due on Oct. 15—did not reach 20% of total assets under management, the limit for redemptions in a given quarter. Investors have until Jan. 15 to request their money back at the beginning of the second quarter.
Just about 26% of Blue Wave’s assets are in credit, with the remainder split between long/short and event-driven portfolios.
