RMF sponsors new credit arb fund


RMF has sponsored a U.S. credit arbitrage fund through its Hedge Fund Ventures (HFV) program. Panton Capital Group, which received an undisclosed amount in capital from RMF, employs a relative value credit trading strategy to capitalize on pricing anomalies in the credit, structured credit and derivatives markets to maximize uncorrelated investment returns for its fund investors. The firm is run by Kassy Kebede, formerly with Deutsche Bank, where he served as head of European fixed-income derivatives, global equity derivatives and subsequently in a variety of positions involving the bank's exposure in Asia and Latin America.
