Schultze Partners, a distressed fund based in Purchase, N.Y., is bulking up its assets and plans to put the new cash to work in the coming weeks. The fund expects to receive an additional $40 million at the end of the month, on top of $175 million under management.

George Schultze, founder and portfolio manager, said he will put the money to work by shorting credits in the airline and commodity-sensitive industries such as auto-suppliers, fuel and chemical companies. He sees companies in these sectors as most likely to seek bankruptcy protection next year, but declined to name specific credits.

Schultze said he expects the portfolio to grow to $400 million, at which point he will cap the fund, within the next three to six months. The inflows come as the fund registered a 58% return for the year as of the end of November.
