Hedge Funds Remain Unconcerned with Greece

The small group of hedge funds betting on a Greek recovery remain invested, still hoping that assets like government bonds and bank stocks will rally once a political solution is reached on the nation’s financial obligations.

“[There’s] no change on the expectation of a deal,” Diego Ferro, co-chief investment officer of $1 billion global investor Greylock Capital Management, said in an email. “This problem has been political from the beginning, the amount of money involved is not that big. So you would expect some bickering to last until it is signed.”  Greylock owns government bonds and bank stocks.

Other hedge funds to bet on a Greek recovery include Third Point and Alden Global Capital via Greek recovery-focused funds. Perry Capital and Knighthead Capital Management are among those that own Greek government bonds, according to recent conversations with people familiar with the situation.
