London Firm Launches Carbon Hedge Fund

Oct 20 2008 | 1:16pm ET

London-based CF Partners, an environmental finance firm specializing in carbon advisory and trading, is launching a carbon emissions hedge fund strategy next month.

The CF Carbon Fund adopts a relative value and arbitrage-based approach to trading carbon and the correlation of carbon with other global energy markets. The strategy will exploit pricing inefficiencies and dislocations in these markets.

Because of the arbitrage opportunities that exist in these markets, the firm said the fund currently requires limited leverage and has minimum counterparty risks since the majority of the trades are made on exchanges.

CF Partners formed in 2006 and serves as an adviser to compliance buyers of carbon credits such as industrial companies and utilities. In addition, the firm structures and trades over-the-counter deals among other buyers and traders of emission credits such as funds, banks and trading houses.
