DARIEN, Conn. (– Old Hill Partners recently opted to close its US$235 million Footbridge Limited Trust fund to new investors, leaving the only remaining point of entry through a new fund run by Kenmar Management Ltd.

Kenmar, a US$1 billion wealth management firm, will offer access to the Old Hill five-year-old fixed-income strategy via a new single-manager vehicle called the Signature Advisors Series (Old Hill Bridge) Ltd. Fund.

Allocations to the Kenmar Signature Series fund will be split 50-50 between the Footbridge Limited Trust fund and the FLT Opportunity Fund, a variant of the strategy that has grown to $75 million since its inception in January 2001.

Both Footbridge and FLT are designed to be low-volatility diversified fixed-income plays–tapping an array of fixed-income securities and debt instruments. FLT is the more aggressive of the two, which are both designed to be conservative steady-returns strategies.

The track records for both Old Hill strategies show only one losing month since inception.

“Old Hill is one of those excellent firms that has consciously kept a low profile over the years,” said Florence Sofer, a director at Kenmar. “What we do at Kenmar is provide the management structure, allowing Old Hill to focus on managing the investments.”

The new Kenmar vehicle is available to non-U.S. investors and qualified investors. The minimum investment is US$500,000.
