The Football Fund has launched and is officially open and trading with a February NAV of $99.16 per share. Having completed its initial investments the new hedge fund is currently open to private investors for a limited period of time, to raise additional funds to develop the starting portfolio of investments.

“The timing is perfect as far as I’m concerned because the Masters Football Tournaments have just taken place in Brunei and in Malaysia, where I was a proud participant as player/manager for the Manchester United legends.” Bryan Robson, the President of The Football Fund said.

“Football in Asia is expanding in terms of both wealth and popularity at a rapid rate and the growth potential for companies here is huge.” Andrew Leppard, CEO of The Football Fund, said, “With our business expertise and the legendary status of our football team we can help to drive these companies forward, firstly in Asia and then throughout the globe.”

The hedge fund has already taken equity shareholding in Football Focus Asia, New Talent Holdings Ltd, Football Consultants, Football Solutions (HK) Ltd, and the Elite Soccer Center Ltd. The monthly share price can be tracked online using Bloomberg or Morning Star. Investors in The Football Fund can expect to receive a monthly update on each investment as well as a monthly statement of their holdings.

The Football Fund team is led by Manchester United legend Bryan Robson and also features Brazilian World Cup winner Carlos Alberto Torres, Plymough Argyle manager Peter Reid and ESPN Star Sports presenter and Liverpool legend Steve McMahon.  www.thefootballfund.com
