Decillion launches first South African fixed-income arbitrage fund

The Granite fund will initially begin with R70 million ($3 million) seed capital, but could grow to between R400 million and R500 million, according to Uys Meyer, head of Decillion’s fund management group.

Mark Le Roux, previously a fund manager at South African financial services company Old Mutual, will manage the fund.

Decillion also launched a long/short equity fund today, to add to its two existing long/short funds in South Africa and the UK. Meyer said the new equity fund will focus on the local South African market.

The fund is aimed at both institutional and private clients.
