Hedge Fund Says Housing Market May Dip Again

Hedge fund firm Pine River, which makes big bets on housing, is bracing for a double dip in that market, its chief executive officer said on Tuesday.

"There are still issues in the housing markets and it would not surprise us to see the recovery turn down," Brian Taylor, who founded the $1.6 billion hedge fund eight years ago, said at the Reuters Private Equity and Hedge Funds Summit in New York.

For Pine River, where Taylor and his seven partners work to identify relative value mispricings ahead of the curve, these are times of great opportunity. The fund gained about 90 percent, last year.
