Semiconductor Expert Gears Up To Launch Niche Fund

Aug 11 2006 | 12:00am ET

ChipInvestors Group is readying to launch a long/short hedge fund that will invest exclusively in semi-conductor companies. “We believe that we are one of the very few, if not the only, investment funds that is structured like a hedge fund and is focused 100% on the semiconductor space,” said Manoj Nadkarni, founder and portfolio manager of the Washington State-based firm.

The fund, ChipInvestor Partners L.P., is set to launch Sept. 1. Nadkarni explained that the firm’s investment approach is twofold. First, it will take a macro-approach to analyzing the industry and where it is in its cycle of growth, and second, it will take a bottom-up approach, evaluating the fundamentals of each company in which the fund invests.
