Reech AiM Preps Commodities, Credit Hedge Funds

Jan 30 2008 | 1:00am ET

U.K-based Reech AiM Group is expanding its product offerings to include hedge funds focused on the natural resources and credit markets, according to CEO Christophe Reech.

Reech said the firm has teams in place for the launches, and anticipates debuting the new funds sometime in the second or third quarter. The firm’s strategy “is to launch a series of scalable and uncorrelated funds,” Reech said. He declined to comment further, saying only that he has “no interest whatsoever in building funds that look like everyone else’s.”

Reech last year formed a partnership with real-estate conglomerate CB Richard Ellis to focus on developing real-estate hedge funds resulting in the launch of he Iceberg Alternative Real Estate Fund, which takes a quantitative approach to investing in listed securities, unlisted real estate vehicles and property derivatives. Since inception in May 2007, the fund has returned 24.51% to its investors, according to the firm.

The firm’s Equitech Relative Value Fund, a statistical arbitrage fund, which also began trading at the same time, “has outperformed consistently its peer group over the last seven months,” according to Reech. 

Prior to founding his firm last year, Reech helped build and ran derivatives divisions at Nikko Europe, Commerz Financial Products (the former derivatives arm of Commerzbank) and Banque Paribas (now part of BNP Paribas).
