Hedging The Bubble

Economist and REIT manager Ken Rosen explains his new hedge fund againstthe backdrop of bubble babble.

"Expecting to catch and ride the wave of increasingly sophisticated real estate investors at the institutional level, fund manager and economist Ken Rosen -- never one of the most optimistic REIT watchers around -- is building a long-short hedge fund investing in a broad range of real estate stocks. The fund, started with a small core o assets he retained from the sale of Lend Lease Rosen Real Estate Securities in a management buyout last year, now stands at $100 million; Rosen's target is $500 million. His previous fund returned an average of 13% to its investors over its 11-year span."
