Hardt Group makes strategic allocation to Stone Gate


New York-based Stone Gate Capital recently opened its $30 million credit fund to outside investors for the first time.

The long/short high-yield fund, which was previously open only to friends and family of the managers, took in cash in recent weeks from two strategic investors including a fund of funds run by the Vienna-based Hardt group.

Stone Gate has produced strong returns this year by investing in non-distressed U.S.
