Deutsche Bank and Financial Risk Management are launching a hedge fund seeding managed account platform.
The dbalternatives Discovery platform, extends the investor protection afforded by its managed account framework into the hedge fund seeding arena. Developed in 2002, the dbalternatives managed account platform addresses hedge fund investor concerns regarding fraud, transparency, liquidity and independent valuation.
FRM, through its hedge fund seeding division FRM Capital Advisors (FCA), will select and negotiate strategic investments in emerging managers which will be made through managed accounts on the dbalternatives Discovery platform.
Deutsche Bank will also raise capital for a seeding fund which will invest in early stage hedge funds selected by FCA, which evaluates over 500 seeding opportunities annually through FRM’s global investment team. Investors can utilise the platform to invest in a seeding fund or directly into emerging hedge funds.
