Stamford Advocate – A Greenwich hedge fund company is among hundreds of the risky investment entities that have closed or are projected to close this year amid volatile equity and commodity markets.
Turnberry Capital Management told investors last week that it will liquidate its fund and close its doors after most of the clients sought to withdraw their money, Reuters reported. The fund, which invests in distressed debt, once managed about $800 million.
"We intend to take a series of steps to liquidate the Fund and redeem all Fund investors at the same pace," fund manager Jeff Dobbs wrote in a letter to clients that Reuters obtained. "After Labor Day, we will commence a sell-down of the Fund’s security holdings in order to raise cash to fund redemptions."
