Prime Capital’s second fund of hedge funds PCAM Select takes important hurdle

March 06, 2019

Nine months after launch, PCAM Select significantly surpassed USD 100 million, an important size for institutional Investors

Frankfurt, 6 March 2019

The Multi-Strategy Fund of Funds (FoHF) PCAM Select, which was launched in August 2018 with approximately USD 60 million, has recently surpassed USD 100 million assets under management (AuM), which is important for many investors. At the end of February 2019, PCAM Select is reporting more than USD 140 million in AuM. The fund continues to accept further investors. It is the successor to the highly successful PCAM Blue Chip Ltd., which was launched in 2007 and stopped accepting new funds at the end of 2017 after reaching an investment volume (AuM) of around USD 850 million.

“PCAM Select is attracting a great deal of interest from institutional investors,” said Dr Werner Goricki, CIO of Prime Capital and board member. “The success of PCAM Select is also attributable to our newly formed Absolute Return team led by Tilo Wendorff and Vivek Mani.”

“The inflow of USD 75 million into PCAM Select in the first quarter 2019 reflects the continued strong demand for successful multi-strategy products,” added Tilo Wendorff, Managing Director Absolute Return. “With a volume of USD 140 million, the fund now has a critical mass that will put it on the radar of other investors.”

The underlying portfolio of PCAM Select currently consists of 16 target funds that invest across the entire multi-strategy spectrum. Up to 25% of the capital is devoted to medium-sized flexible managers, while most of the capital is invested in established blue chip managers.

Earlier this year, Prime Capital added two experienced alternative investment specialists, Tilo Wendorff and Vivek Mani, to its Absolute Return Team and reorganized the business unit. Both newcomers have approx. 20 years of experience in the hedge fund and alternative asset industry each. Wendorff most recently worked for the Max Planck Foundation and now heads Hedge Fund Analysis and Fund of Hedge Fund Management at Prime Capital. Mani, who is responsible for Liquid Alternatives at Prime Capital, previously held senior investment positions at the World Bank, UBS Global Asset Management and the Abu Dhabi Investment Council (ADIC).
