Resnick said the offering is on pace to return will approximately 4.65% through September. The fund is currently invested in seven underlying managers and manages some $ 7.6 million in assets.

The fund currently has exposure to several types of lending hedge funds, some currency trading managers, statistical arbitrage and some volatility arbitrage managers.

“We are always looking for new managers who bring in consistent returns with minimal volatility,” says Resnick.

Resnick added that the new offering is a carve-out of the firm’s Blackpool Partners Fund, which began trading in January 2000 and currently manages $13 million.
