Soros, Bass funds ask London judge to protect investments in Argentine bonds

A group of funds including George Soros’s Quantum Partners LP and Kyle Bass’s Hayman Capital Management LP asked a London judge to protect a 1.3 billion-euro ($1.6 billion) investment in Argentinian bonds from New York lawsuits triggered by the country’s default, Bloomberg news agency reported today.

The investors are “innocent third parties” in the dispute between Argentina and creditors who are refusing to participate in a restructuring deal, their lawyer Mark Hapgood said at a court hearing. They are “entitled to be paid their share” of the proceeds from the Euro-denominated bonds, he said.

Quantum and Hayman, along with Knighthead Capital Management LLC and RGY Investments LLC funds, asked Judge Guy Newey to order that an account holding about 226 million euros for interest payments on the bonds is covered by English law and not affected by court orders from New York. The account’s trustee, Bank of New York Mellon Corp., opposes the application.
