Karsch launches fund with limited investment capacity


New York-based hedge fund Karsch Capital Management is expected to launch a UCITS-compliant fund with restricted capacity in May 2012.

The size of the UCITS fund will be capped at $230 million with an annual management charge of 1.95%, a performance fee of 20% and weekly liquidity.

The offshore flagship hedge fund has monthly liquidity with 45 days notice and a 1.5% annual management
