Billionaire investor Wilbur Ross in new Irish property deal with Cardinal Capital (Independent)
The US billionaire’s firm and Irish investment house Cardinal have signed a joint venture which aims to raise €400m for property investments. The new fund will be open to new investors as well as those who backed Wilbur Ross previously on deals including his successful Bank of Ireland (ADR) (NYSE:IRE) play. …Mezzanine finance is a relatively risky form of investments that bridges the gap between loans and pure equity – a mezzanine provider typical charges interest but unlike traditional lenders is well back in the queue to be repaid if a deal fails.INVESCO PRIVATE CAPITAL Wilbur Ross

Chinese port probe may spread to iron ore, soybeans -hedge fund (Reuters)
The Chinese probe into financing of copper and aluminium may spread to other commodities such as iron ore and soybeans, an executive of a commodity hedge fund said on Wednesday. Banks and trading houses have been making urgent checks on the security of metal holdings in China, sparked by a suspected fraud at Qingdao Port, the world’s seventh biggest. Police are investigating the duplication of warehouse receipts by a third-party firm on metal cargos used to obtain financing.

Research Report Still Has Polygon Reeling (Finalternatives)
Polygon Investment Partners was mad last month over a research report attacking one of its largest investments, and it’s even madder now. Polygon’s 11-month winning streak was snapped in April, after Gotham City Research called Quindell Portfolio “a country club built on quicksand” whose shares are worth no more than £0.03.

Those losses extended into last month, sending Polygon down 1.39% and cutting its year-to-date gains to 8.69%.

Ex-China Sovereign Manager Plans Hedge Fund (Finalternatives)
A former top stock manager at China’s sovereign wealth fund is set to launch a long-biased hedge fund focused on the country. Yu Bin, who served as managing director of public equities at the China Investment Corp., left the fund earlier this year for personal reasons after five years. Among his responsibilities at the US$650 billion SWF was allocating to external long-only stock funds, the demand for which he now hopes to tap. “For anyone interested in value and performance over the long term, this should be a great opportunity for managers, such as Yu Bin, looking to launch long-biased China funds,” Eurekahedge CEO Alex Mearns told Bloomberg News.

Activist Hedge Fund Firms Eye European Targets (InstitutionalInvestor)
Last October William Ackman, founder of New York hedge fund firm Pershing Square Capital Management, announced to an audience at Oxford University’s Said Business School that shareholder activism – largely a pursuit particular to U.S. hedge fund titans – “is going to happen” in Europe. The dots began to connect when news broke this spring that Ackman was raising money for a closed-end fund that could possibly list on the London Stock Exchange this summer. The wave of U.S. activism of the past few years has largely remained on the western shore of the Atlantic. In the meantime, European companies have been watching and taking notes…
