FRM Capital Advisors Seeds Japan Focused Hedge Fund

"Toby has demonstrated his ability to run a successful portfolio within a robust risk management framework and with FCA's support we believe he will be able to build an alternative investment management business that benefits his investors, his team and FCA's investors."

Toby Bartlett, CIO of Arena, said: "As a new hedge fund, this major investment by FCA allows us to focus all our energies on operational excellence and generating high quality returns for our investors.

"Our focused approach to fundamental research in Japanese equities, combined with disciplined portfolio construction and risk management, allows us to pursue our goal to have low correlation to markets and protect against downside volatility whilst capitalizing on market opportunities for our investors.

"This strategic relationship with FCA is a major endorsement of the investment process and business principles of Arena."

Arena is the first seeding deal announced by FCA since FRM was acquired by Man in July 2012 and combined with its multi-manager business to create the largest independent European based fund of hedge funds group.
