CopperTree Launches Special Situations Fund

Oct 17 2008 | 1:08am ET

London-based CopperTree Capital Management has launched its second special situations fund to invest in listed and unlisted companies.

The Global Opportunities Fund focuses on longer-term special-situations investments, primarily in the energy, marine, transportation and infrastructure sectors, according to the firm. It employs leverage and uses equity, convertibles and derivative products to provide alpha to its investors.

The fund launched in July with US$300 million and is closed to new investors. There is a three-year lock-up with 180 days notice.

CopperTree’s existing Mustang Master Fund, which launched in June 2006, mainly invests in listed or pre-IPO mid-to-small cap companies.

David Atkinson is the founding partner of CopperTree Capital Management, which he set up in 2004. Previously, he served as head of U.S. Equity Investment for Jardine Fleming Asset Management.
