Finvest Launches Offering and FOHF Allocation

West Palm Beach (HedgeCo.net) – Finvest Asset Management is set to launch a new capital protected offering for investors who are seeking to generate annual returns of between 12-20 percent in a low risk structure.

The total offering is for $500 million and is open to non-U.S. investors only. The capital protected product will be offered to investors in the form of a U.S. Dollar denominated subscription. Downward pressure on the Euro relative to the dollar, will further enhance the investment and provide a source of upward performance for investors.

The Zurich-based Asset Management company has also received a mandate to allocate around $300m to the fund of hedge funds sector as part of a low-risk strategy to capitalise on the turbulence in global financial markets market.

Allocations will be made to funds that have a track record of at least three years, have an attractive Sharpe ratio, and are targeting annual returns of between 10 and 15 per cent. Funds of funds that may have incurred negative returns will not be excluded from the selection process.

"The decision to allocate to a hedge fund goes against the current trend," says Finvest portfolio strategist Mayer Greenwald. "However, we see a tremendous amount of upside in the fund of funds space, providing that portfolio managers apply the appropriate risk management." He argues that a good fund of funds can provide value in its ability to optimise allocations and achieve an appropriate risk/reward profile.

Finvest currently operates an office from Zurich and recently announced plans to open an office in London and Cypress. It also manages the Finvest Primer and Finvest Yankee funds.
