The Family Office Co., a multi-family investment office headquartered in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has seeded the hedge fund 3-Sigma Value Offshore.
The new fund is managed by 3-Sigma Value Investment Management, a New York-based investment firm managed by Benjamin Weinger.
“We believe that 3-Sigma Value is distinctive among long/short equity managers in that their returns have historically been uncorrelated with the overall market and they have consistently generated alpha on the short side,” said Abdulmohsin Al Omran, chief executive officer of The Family Office. “Their investment process is transparent and repeatable, and the portfolio is highly liquid.”
3-Sigma Value launched in March 2007 and utilizes a deep-value, fundamental-based, long-short investment strategy. Weinger, the firm’s portfolio manager, previously founded and was CEO of Blackwood, Inc., a trading and software development company. Weinger also held positions at Bear Stearns & Co. and Cramer Rosenthal McGlynn.
The firm’s chief operating officer, Kareen Mozes Laton, previously worked for Goldman Sachs & Co. in private wealth management.
3-Sigma Value Offshore is domiciled in the British Virgin Islands, audited by Anchin, Block & Anchin, and administered by Columbus Avenue Consulting. Goldman Sachs serves as custodian and prime broker.
