Fortress Investment Group has invested an extra $200 million into its fund for buying distressed triple-A-rated RMBS, according to published reports.

This move underlines the hedge fund’s target of making significant returns from the damaged sector.

The Fortress mortgage opportunities fund, which has a leveraging strategy with a debt-equity ratio of 2:1, is down about 30% three months after having raised $560 million in the spring.

Fortress, however, remains confident, as investors can’t redeem their holdings before a three year lock-in period expires.
