Dexion Plans To Enter Listed Fund World On Its Own

Jun 9 2008 | 11:40am ET

London-based hedge fund consultant Dexion Capital plans to launch two listed vehicles over the next year.

Dexion, which is no stranger to listed hedge fund products, having served as joint bookrunner for Brevan Howard Asset Management’s US$1 billion share sale last month, is still considering what strategies the funds will employ. Infrastructure and high-yield debt are among the candidates.

“We’re looking to expand our product base into other types of assets within the alternative asset space—single manager hedge funds, infrastructure,” Ana Haurie, group managing director, told Reuters.

Dexion said it expects to launch the first fund in either the third or fourth quarter, with the second debuting in the first half of next year.
