Colt has investments in a number of hedge funds which currently include equity long/short, distressed debt, event driven and global macro. Colt has seeded several portfolio managers and is actively seeking additional opportunities. Colt seeks fund managers that have experience from top-tier multi-strategy shops or have spun out to set up their own funds. Most of the funds Colt has invested in are domain specific and have accretive synergies with the proprietary traders inside Colt Ventures. Examples of sectors we prefer are: consumer/retail, energy and mining, shipping, banking and financials, and biotech/pharma.
