Goldman Sachs Starts Unwinding Hedge Fund Investments
Goldman detailed its plans in a correspondence with the SEC last June. The regulator asked the bank to disclose the extent to which hedge fund and private-equity investing had been terminated or disposed of as well as steps the firm planned to take.
The correspondence was posted on the SEC’s website last week, though the plans were also disclosed in securities filings.
Goldman manages $20 billion of hedge fund assets for clients in its Goldman Sachs Asset Management division. The firm’s own investment in hedge funds was valued at $3.2 billion at the end of December, according to its recent annual financial filing, in strategies including long/short equity, credit, convertibles, risk arbitrage, special situations and capital structure arbitrage, the filing said.
Its Petershill fund invests in several outside hedge funds, including Partner Fund Management, Mt. Lucas Management, Winton Capital, Altana Wealth, and Capula Investment Management.
Goldman didn’t disclose which funds would be affected by the unwinding. Some of its stakes don’t cross the 3% threshold. Source
