Hong Kong hedge fund Ortus readies FX fund for mid-March launch

LONDON, Feb 5 (Reuters) - Hong Kong-based hedge fund firm Ortus Capital Management, which manages about $1 billion, is preparing to launch a new fund in mid-March to bet on 28 global currencies, it said in a letter to investors seen by Reuters.

The Ko-Zhou Fundamental FX Fund will identify "currency cycles driven by fundamental forces" and bet on the currencies of the top-10 major countries as well as those in Asia and Latin America, the firm told investors.
