UAE Asset Manager Launches Hedge Funds

US-based Stream Asset Management announced the launch of a credit dislocation fund and a multi-strategy credit hedge fund, the company said in a press statement.

The move is part of Gulf Stream's aggressive expansion strategy to capitalise on current market opportunities. To further support the firm's growth, Gulf Stream has also opened a New York City office, the statement added.

Earlier this year, Istithmar World Capital, the private equity and alternative investment arm of Istithmar World, acquired a majority stake in Gulf Stream. Gulf Stream Asset Management is majority owned by Istithmar World Capital.
