London Shop Preps Carbon Hedge Fund

Dec 22 2008 | 7:32am ET

London-based CF Partners is currently prepping a carbon hedge fund to launch early next year with a €50 million (US$72 million). 

The CF Carbon Fund employs a relative value and arbitrage-based approach to trading carbon, according to the firm’s Web site. It seeks to capitalize on pricing inefficiencies and dislocations in the carbon markets.

“To date in the carbon space the majority of the players from a fund point of view have been long-only guys," said Simon Glossop, one of CF's founders, in an interview. "That's been a workable model up to this year, but carbon has now become an asset class in its own right instead of a compliance tool.”
