New York-based Fore Research & Management recently added a new loan fund to its lineup. The new Fore Leverage Loan Opportunity Fund focuses primarily on the leveraged loan market in North America and Europe and was seeded with approximately $26 million by Fore founder and chief investment officer Matthew Li as well as Fore employees.
