Ex-Pimco Palghat to Double Assets in Fixed-Interest Hedge Fund

Bloomberg – Kapstream Capital, Australia’s biggest fixed-income hedge fund, will almost double assets under management in the next month as pension funds seek returns in all market conditions.

The Sydney-based firm has secured investments that will take funds it oversees to A$1.2 billion ($965 million), from A$650 million, said founder Kumar Palghat, Pacific Investment Management Co.’s former head of portfolio management in Asia- Pacific.
