Viathon Capital has launched the Whitewater Master Fund, a credit opportunity fund focused on non-correlated absolute returns.

The fund employs a fundamental, credit intensive research process in order to identify long and short investment opportunities in the US and Europe. The fund’s objective is to seek long term capital appreciation by investing in high yield and investment grade corporate bonds and bank debt.

Affiliates of Citigroup Alternative Investments are seed investors in the fund.

The fund launched in May 2009 with USD50m in capital and had a net return of +0.92 per cent for the month of May and estimates +2.10 per cent for June, bringing its inception to date return to approximately +3.02 per cent

Viathon Capital’s team includes four investment professionals and two trade support/back office personnel with backgrounds from Marathon Asset Management, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Neuberger Berman, SAC/Sigma, Providence Investment Management and Lehman Brothers.

The fund has instituted several key initiatives including a premium on liquidity, high level of transparency and a modest amount of leverage, all designed to service the needs of sophisticated intuitional and private bank investors.
