Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“FOIA"), I request access to and copies of alternative investment portfolio records specifically for close-ended:
Private equity funds
Real estate funds
Fund of funds
(“the Records”) and details of:
On an individual fund by fund basis with aggregated values since inception for quarters ending 06/30/2020 ("the Information").
This request is ongoing, seeking copies of (or access to) all Records as they are filed with Croydon Borough Council / updates to the Information as they are filed with the Croydon Borough Council. I am further requesting that the Records / Information be provided to me in PDF or Excel format, if not maintained on computer files, in the same format as they are / it is currently maintained at the Croydon Borough Council.
In your reply can you please specify whether the fund has or has ever invested into the hedge fund asset class, as well as providing hedge fund performance as requested.
I am an analyst at Bloomberg Private Equity team, responsible for providing accurate and robust analysis, ideas, and data sets on all players in the private equity industry to impact decision-making. I request the Records / Information to inform the public about matters of public concern and to contribute to the public understanding of the operations of the government.
FOIA requires that your agency respond to my request within 20 business days of receipt of this letter. This request is segregable, and your agency may not withhold entire records because of one section that you believe is exempt from disclosure. If you choose to withhold any such parts of the Records / Information from disclosure, because of a specific exemption or otherwise, you must specify in a written response the factual and legal basis for withholding any part of the Records / Information. FOIA also requires that you provide reasonable advice and assistance to me in relation to my request.
Please contact me if I may assist in your office's response to this request, including if you reasonably require further information in order to identify and locate the Records / Information requested. As this information is of timely value, I would appreciate your communicating with me by telephone or email, rather than by mail, if you have questions regarding this request.
Thank you for your kind assistance.
