London-based credit asset manager Channel Capital Advisors has launched an event-driven hedge fund.

Channel Capital announced in a statement Wednesday that the new fund, which began trading at the beginning of this month, “seeks to identify mispriced corporate debt where a catalyst will drive price realignment and profit realization.” The fund invests mainly in liquid bonds, equity and CDs.

Managed by former Lazard high-yield portfolio manager Peter Bakker and former LKS and SGS high yield portfolio manager Frits Lieuw-kie-song, the launch of the new fund marks an important new initiative for Channel, according to the announcement.

Founded by a team of credit risk management professionals in late 2006, Channel manages approximately $10 billion in assets.
