Flight to size hurts smaller hedge funds

first_img KCS-content BOUTIQUE hedge funds are suffering as investors’ cash flows into larger investment houses in a trend dubbed the “flight to size”, a survey published last night revealed.The top five European hedge funds by size grew their assets under management by 18 per cent to $112bn (£73bn) in the year to mid-2010, according to research compiled by The Hedge Fund Journal in association with Newedge. In contrast, the 10 smallest funds saw their capital shrink by seven per cent to $14bn.The numbers suggest investors are rushing for the perceived brand safety and improved liquidity of larger hedge funds. Giant asset manager Brevan Howard and Guernsey-based BlueCrest Capital Management were among the beneficiaries, with BlueCrest increasing its assets by a generous 58 per cent to $20.5bn.Revealing its Europe50 league table, The Hedge Fund Journal wrote: “Much anecdotal evidence suggests the flight to size is having an even more pronounced impact on the hundreds of smaller firms that fall below the threshold for inclusion. What’s more, the tough environment for capital raising and the cost of regulatory changes is likely to crimp the emergence of new funds for some years.”Despite difficult conditions, a number of fledglings appeared in the top 50 list. Veteran London trader Tony Chedraoui’s event-driven Tyrus Capital vehicle charted at 43rd place with $1.6bn of assets. Finisterre Capital, an emerging markets vehicle, was 49th with $1.2bn.TOP FOUR HEDGE FUNDS BY SIZE1. Brevan Howard2. Man Investments3. BlackRock 4.

AIA kicks off IPO pre-marketing

first_img Share whatsapp Tags: NULL American International Group Inc will hold at least a 30 per cent stake in its Asian life insurance business, AIA Group Ltd, for a year after AIA’s listing next month, the IPO term sheet showed.AIA began pre-marketing for the IPO to gauge demand and is expected to set a price range in coming weeks. Two brokers, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch released research reports on AIA on Monday with an average top-end valuation of $38.8bn (£24bn).The two brokers are among the 11 book runners for the IPO, which is set to be the biggest ever insurance float.The bullish valuations for AIA compare with the $35.5bn which Prudential Plc first offered for AIA in March. The insurer had then asked AIG to cut the price to $30.4bn, but it was turned down, leading to the termination of the agreement.AIA’s share offering is expected to raise about $15bn, which will help its parent AIG return part of the aid it received from the US government during the financial crisis.“While AIA has recovered from a trough caused by the AIG events, it is unclear whether its brand equity has been affected and if it can replicate its success with the new premium generation, agency recruitment and persistency,” Bank of America, said in a report which Reuters obtained from fund managers.AIG is yet to decide the exact stake it will sell in AIA, but some bankers have said that the U.S. insurer will cut its holding by about 50 per cent.AIA was likely to sign up cornerstone investors during pre-marketing, ahead of its scheduled listing on 29 October, sources have previously told Reuters.The cornerstone investors would be subject to a lock-in period of six months, the term sheet showed.AIA’s management team is in advanced talks with several Middle Eastern and Asian sovereign funds to sell cornerstone stakes in AIA, which is the next major step in AIA’s listing process.Over the weekend, AIG said AIA would likely post a pre-tax operating profit of at least $2bn for the fiscal year ending in November.That compares with $1.84 billion it earned in 2009.AIG, nearly 80 percent owned by the U.S. government, is disposing of assets to repay taxpayers who committed $182.3 billion to prop up the insurer during the financial crisis.AIA would be unable to sell new shares within six months of listing, the term sheet showed.

Client-facing staff are thought to be safe for the time being.The news comes less than a month after RBS?announced that up to 3,500 support staff jobs will go from its consumer banking arm. Those jobs losses were described by Unite, which represents staff at the bank as “horrific”. National officer Rob MacGregor said it would be particularly difficult for staff to accept as RBS had decided to move some of the jobs abroad.At the time he said: “Just three weeks ago staff were boosted to hear of the £1.1bn half year profit yet today thousands of them are told that they have no future at the bank. Unite is appalled that this 84 per cent taxpayer-supported institution has since 2009 – under the banner of a strategic review – cut 21,500 staff.”Just three months earlier RBS announced redundancies among back-office staff in its wealth management division which includes Coutts, the bankers to the Queen, and Adam & Co. In May it said 2,600 positions would go at its insurance and retail banking arms. An RBS spokesman said: “We continue to make efficiencies across our business to ensure that we have the right people and resources in place to meet our client needs. We will do all we can to support our staff, offer redeployment opportunities wherever possible and keep compulsory redundancies to an absolute minimum.” last_img read more

Ofgem plans to halt quiet price hikes

first_img whatsapp Thursday 30 September 2010 10:29 pm Share ENERGY suppliers will have to warn customers 30 days in advance before raising power and gas prices if a plan by watchdog Ofgem wins approval. Under current rules, suppliers can put up prices without notifying customers for up to 65 days afterwards.The rules will come into effect at the start of 2011, providing suppliers do not object. Energy secretary Chris Huhne has already warned that the government may take legal action against energy firms if they block reforms. “This is a welcome step forward in getting energy companies to play fair with their customers by giving advance notice of price increases,” said Huhne.He added: “It’s important people know about price hikes before they are charged, so they can budget.”The regulator said that new rules would give householders more chance to switch supplier or reduce their energy use to help counter the effect of increased prices.“This information makes it easier to shop around for a better energy deal and to evaluate the benefits energy efficiency measures can deliver,” said Andrew Wright, Ofgem’s senior partner for markets.Wholesale gas prices have soared in 2010, pushing up wholesale power prices and raising the possibility of further retail price hikes.

However, overall the market remained 7.8 per cent up on the previous year. It was the third consecutive monthly fall but had been expected due to the withdrawal of the car scrappage scheme. The £400m “cash for bangers” scheme, which was launched in May 2009 to boost falling car sales of new cars, paid drivers of cars that were at least 10 years old £2,000 towards the cost of a new vehicle, which ended on 31 March. whatsappcenter_img Share Tags: NULL Thursday 21 October 2010 8:23 pm Show Comments ▼ The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said 126,548 cars were built last month, bringing the total so far this year to 937,891, a 35 per cent increase on last year.Commercial vehicle production rose 16.7 per cent in September to 11,339, taking the total to 91,527 this year an increase of 38 per cent.Total vehicle production grew 6.6 per cent while engine production increased by 1.3 per cent last month to 229,209.Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive, said he was encouraged by the Comprehensive Spending Review and the government’s continued commitment to the UK motor industry. Everitt said: “Support for low carbon vehicles, skills and research and development will all help to sustain and encourage investment in the UK motor industry.”He said plans to increase the availability of adult apprenticeships by more than 50 per cent, as part of the focus on skills and education, were particularly welcome.

Tax on the “holiday cash bonus” will also be paid for by Google.“While we don’t typically comment on internal matters, we do believe that competitive compensation plans are important to the future of the company,” a Google spokesman said in an email.The news suggests Google is in strong health as a company – it recruited 1,500 staff in the three months to September. But it also suggests that it is taking fears over staff attrition in Silicon Valley seriously – particularly against main rival Facebook. The company’s chief financial officer Patrick Pichette talked about the Internet industry’s “war for talent” when presenting bullish third quarter financial results last month. In 2009, Google repriced millions of employee stock options whose value had been wiped out.

Bid ban may hit Sky News

first_img Show Comments ▼ Bid ban may hit Sky News Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp KCS-content Sharecenter_img SKY News could suffer if the takeover of its owner BSkyB by News Corp is blocked, according to independent directors at the broadcaster.In a submission to media watchdog Ofcom, directors at Sky warned future investment in the news channel could be jeopardised if the takeover is vetoed. They argue that blocking the £7.8bn bid could actually undermine “media plurality” – the issue being investigated by Ofcom – by weakening Sky News.The directors said this would be “a wholly unwelcome outcome, contrary to the public interest,” claiming they wanted to avoid Ofcom setting a precedent that could discourage future interest in the channel.They also argued that Sky News controls just five per cent of the TV news audience, meaning the takeover would not pose “serious public interest consequences”.The submission, part of the Ofcom probe into the bid, comes after News Corp ramped up pressure on the government last week. News Corp’s head of Europe James Murdoch said News Corp could move some of its operations abroad if the coalition tried to stand in the way of the takeover.News Corp is desperate to buy the 61 per cent of Sky it does not already own. However, it has faced intense criticism from rival media organisations, who say the takeover could irrevocably harm the UK media landscape by placing too much power with one firm.

The property, featuring locally sourced materials and art reflecting Shanghai’s history, is due to open by the end of the year.“The historic nature of the location, the visibility of the hotel and also the excitement of the city in general; it is one of the most progressive, ever-changing cities in all of China, so really it is a good fit for Hotel Indigo,” said IHG Regional Manager Keith Barr.IHG said it planned to open more Indigo branded hotels in Asia over the next three years, including in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taipei and Xiamen. IHG already has Indigo hotels in London, Costa Rica and the United States.“The key thing is for us is making sure we have customers who want to travel there, and what drives Indigo is ‘psychographics’ rather than demographics,” Barr said of the strategy for expanding Hotel Indigo in mainland China. In October, IHG, the world’s biggest hotelier by room count, said revenue from Greater China would exceed $1bn (£641m) for the first time this year. whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof KCS-content whatsappcenter_img Share Thursday 2 December 2010 7:09 pm Intercontinental Hotels launches its boutique brand in Shanghai Show Comments ▼last_img read more
