Cairn Launches Credit Hedge Fund

Apr 10 2008 | 9:20am ET

Cairn Financial Products, a $9.6 billion credit hedge fund shop, has recently launched a new fund aimed at institutional investors. 

The Cairn Capital Structured Credit Fund, which was launched in December, invests in credit derivatives, options and asset-backed securities. It has returned more than 5% net of fees since inception, according to the firm.

Andrew Jackson, Cairn’s head of quantitative research, is the portfolio manager for the fund.
 
“We believe that the recent re\pricing and deleveraging of credit has created unprecedented opportunities within the market,” said Jackson. “This is the ideal time to take advantage of those opportunities.”

SCF is targeting pension funds, insurance companies, banks and fund managers. The minimum investment in the fund is $1.5 million.
