An interview with Patric de

Fund of hedge funds giant Financial Risk Management launched
its seeding platform, FRM Capital Advisors (FCA), in 2007. The
business is led from London by CEO Clive Peggram and COO Patric
de Gentile-Williams. The firm has made five seedings to date.
It invests globally and does not have a strategy focus, but
will avoid being overweight a particular strategy type.
FCA plans to invest between $700 million and $1 billion, with
an average allocation of around $50 million to each manager.
The seeder made its first investment in August 2008, when it
committed $60 million to Chicago asset-based-lending manager
Victory Park Capital. Subsequent deals have been made with loan
fund Beechbrook Capital, volatility-arbitrage firm JD Capital
Management, credit shop WestSpring Advisors and, most recently,
Asian equity manager Isometric Capital Management.
