Investors eye Greece despite debt talks breakdown

Greeks want to stay in EU: Former Greek PM

The collapse of debt negotiations over the weekend caused Greek stocks to fall more than 5 percent Monday, leading to losses of more than 1 percent on U.S. exchanges. But a small group of hedge funds continues to view uncertainty in Greece as a chance to make money.

"While the ongoing negotiations are likely to result in volatility, regardless of the outcome there should be attractive European recovery opportunities in both Greece and Europe more broadly," Gregory Schneiderman, a portfolio manager at $8 billion hedge fund allocator Aurora Investment Management, said in an email Friday.

Schneiderman noted that Greece was not a common position for hedge funds and that investors only see "a limited number of actionable opportunities" directly related to the troubled country.
