A series of SEC filings late last week revealed that Clifford Asness’ AQR Capital Management is raising capital for several hedge fund offerings. The new hedge funds are the AQR Churchill Fund LP, the AQR ARF Global Total Return Fund II LP, and the AQR Tail Risk Fund, LP.

Beyond the names of the funds, very little information was revealed about the funds, except for the minimum investment amount, which is $5 million. In October of this year AQR Capital, filed similar paperwork for the AQR Gibraltar Fund L.P.

Beyond its hedge fund offerings, Clifford Asness’ firm manages a family of four mutual funds. In July of this year, the firm launched the AQR Multi-Strategy Alternative mutual fund with $20mm in assets. According AQR Capital’s website, the Multi-Strategy Alternative fund had $143mm in assets as of 9/30/2011. The firm’s other mutual funds include the AQR Diversified Arbitrage Fund ($1,981), AQR Managed Futures Strategy Fund ($1,450mm) and the AQR Risk Parity Fund ($267mm).
