Hedge Fund Manager RK Capital Planning New Product in Metals

RK Capital Management LLP plans to introduce a hedge fund that will bet only on rising metals prices, with a goal of raising as much as $1 billion.

The Red Kite Real Return Fund Ltd. will invest in industrial and precious metals and will appeal to investors who look at returns over six to 12 months, David Lilley, co-founder of RK Capital Management, said in an interview in Lausanne, Switzerland, today. The London-based fund will start June 1 and may close to new investors should it reach its maximum target, he said.
