Fundana Series - New fund managers and early stage investors: a better alignment of interests?

Bruno Guillemin This article was authored by Bruno Guillemin, Senior Analyst CAIA, at Fundana. The Fundana series of articles discusses Investments in Emerging Managers; it derives from the real world experience of the Fundana team. Fundana is the investment advisor to several Funds of Hedge Funds and directs at least half of its new investments to Emerging Managers. The investment process typically involves allocating a small amount Day 1 or Early Stage (defined as less than one year after the fund's launch) to new managers who have strong pedigrees. The objective of this series of articles is to share thoughts around our key observations. It does not aim to be "statistically significant" but to create a dialogue around those observations.
