Six Early-Stage Managers To Watch


Spotlight: Six Early-Stage Managers to Watch

Times are challenging for start-up hedge fund managers. The number of new launches is at a low and the average starting asset size is smaller than in prior years. Some new managers are offering preferential fee structures. Year-to-date through the end of May, the HFRI weighted composite is up 3.5%. S&P 500 is up 8.7%. High fees and lackluster returns are concerns among hedge fund investors.

Yet, many investors continue to search out emerging managers for potentially higher returns than established managers tend to generate. Based on interviews with industry veterans including seeders, funds of funds, family offices, and attorneys, we’ve come up with a list of six potential high quality managers following differentiated strategies. The report contains detailed information on each of the six managers and what differentiates them from others.
