Dear Opalesque Reader,
Welcome to the February 2013 issue of New Managers, Opalesque's monthly monitor of new, emerging and re-emerging alternative fund managers.
After our usual Emanagers Index and Database Funds reports, we look at the emerging hedge fund scene in the Nordic region in Focus, particularly at those who foster small managers and startups. This is followed by an interview with Mikael Nilsson, who co-manages SEB's two seeding funds in Seeders' Corner, and the latest news in the hedge fund seeding industry. Our Guest Article this month is about a new study from Beachhead Capital, which shows that small equity long/short managers outperformed their larger peers over five and ten year periods. And Diane Harrison gives us her alternative to the theory of natural selection in The Marketing Challenge.
This month's report ends with the customary recapitulation of recent maiden fund Launches and related matters, a review of the latest news, views and findings relevant to the emerging fund space in News & Perspectives. And in Profiles, emerging managers talk about their funds: Chessica about their Genius Fund, PhaseCapital about their risk-based fund, and Maglan about their distressed fund.
