Morgan Stanley AIP raises USD500m for Strategic Opportunities Fund I

Morgan Stanley Alternative Investment Partners (AIP) has obtained USD500 million in commitments for AIP Strategic Opportunities Fund I (SOF I), a closed-end fund focused on medium-term opportunities in the hedge fund space.

SOF I will focus primarily on hedge fund secondaries, hedge fund co-investments and other opportunistic hedge fund strategies.
Mark van der Zwan and Jarrod Quigley, managing directors, are SOF I's primary portfolio managers.
"We are pleased that we have achieved our fundraising goal for SOF I," says Mustafa Jama, chief investment officer of the Morgan Stanley Alternative Investment Partners hedge fund group. "We believe that the fund is well positioned to capture value by investing in opportunities with a two- to five-year duration. The withdrawal of traditional capital providers, such as banks and proprietary trading desks, from this segment of the market should, in our view, enable highly selective investors with patient capital to generate attractive returns."
