HAMILTON, Bermuda (HedgeWorld.com)–Focus Investment Group plans to launch its second issue of the Focus Principal Protected Opportunity Notes with Barclays Bank PLC once again providing a guarantee for the offering.

Officials hope to raise US$50 million in this second series of notes after Focus’ first series closed on Dec. 1 . With mainly European investors in that first series of notes, officials expected to gather US$50 million, but officials declined to disclose the final amount.

Like the Series 1 notes, this offering will invest in multiple strategies, including global macro, commodity trading advisers, long/short equity, distressed and convertible arbitrage. The underlying vehicle is the Focus Opportunity Fund, which targets annualized returns of 9% to 12%, net of all fees with a volatility of 7% to 9% over the medium term.

Barclays Bank will guarantee 100% of the investors’ initial principal and will offer an annual 1% coupon, according to Focus.

Focus Investment Group manages more than US$1 billion in multi-manager portfolios.
