Technology Telecommunications & Media Hedge Fund Opens

A new fund focused entirely on technology, media and telecommunications has opened its doors to investors. The California-based hedge fund Thompson Peak Capital has been operating for months and currently manages $50 million in assets and hopes to multiply that number by 10 with contributions from outside investors.

The fund, which Thompson Peak has been running since the beginning of the year, currently has $50 million in assets, HFMWeek reports. It hopes initially to raise $500 million, half of its $1 billion capacity.
Basso Capital and Morgan Stanley veteran Gustavo Miguel serves as portfolio manager of the fund, which invests exclusively in U.S. companies and has between 15 and 20 positions. The fund charges 2% for management and 20% for performance and features a $1 million minimum investment requirement. Deutsche Bank serves as prime broker.

Thompson Peak was founded by Miguel and two others: David Siminoff, formerly of Capital Research and Management, and Michael Hourigan, formerly of Morgan Stanley's mergers and acquisitions group. Siminoff serves as chief investment officer. In addition, to coincide with the fund's public launch, the firm has recently hired a director of business development, Matthew Michelsen.  Source
