Revere Emerging Managers Fund opens to investors

Tuesday, February 26, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Revere Capital Advisors (Revere), the London and New York-based boutique emerging hedge fund manager specialist, announces the official launch and opportunity to invest in its portfolio of earlystage hedge funds, the REM Founders Fund.

For several years, Revere has employed an investment process that seeks to identify hedge fund managers at the conception of their business. After identifying new launches, the REM Research & Investment team evaluates all relevant managers through a defined and repeatable due diligence process. Revere has now opened the Revere Emerging Managers (REM) Founders Fund to institutional clients and other external investors. They will also be able to access the entire Revere Emerging Managers research universe, as well as insight and advice from the team.

Revere decided to launch the REM Founders Fund last year in order to allocate its proprietary capital to some of the most compelling investment opportunities that were arising from its systematic research process and to develop a firm track record. In April 2012, the REM Founders Fund was formed with a view to allocating to a concentrated portfolio of 10-12 high conviction managers.

Commenting on the official launch, Camilla Balmer said: “The early identification of these funds has allowed our team to build a lower cost portfolio by taking advantage of discounted fees offered to early investors. We are pleased to be able to share news about the REM Founders Fund and we hope that investors will be encouraged to learn more about it.”

Dan Barnett, chief executive officer of Revere Capital Advisors was included in the panel for the Opalesque New York Roundtable in New York in October 2012. You can access that Roundtable here.

In 2011, Barnett was interviewed for Opalesque TV. Watch that interview here.
