New Managers March 2013

Editorial

Dear Opalesque Reader,

Welcome to the March 2013 issue of New Managers, Opalesque's monthly monitor of new, emerging and re-emerging alternative fund managers.

Following the Emanagers Index performance for February, Peter Urbani looks at the three main methods of generating correlated random deviates for the purposes of performing Monte Carlo simulations.

This month's list of new funds in the EManagers database is followed by an analysis produced by our research unit of the performance of CTAs that invest in soft commodities in EManagers DB Insights.

What fees are charged nowadays? How should you start fee negotiations and what are the different ways to work around straight-forward fee reductions? We tackle the sensitive topic of fees in this month's Focus piece. Then, 47N explains why investors should ask of funds of funds "where's the beef?" and why smaller managers may save the day. Eurofin has a long look at the relevance of hedge fund size on this month's Guest Article. Chris Nutt of Investor Communications spells out seven ways towards precise written communication in The Marketing Challenge. Pinebridge talks about their business plan in Seeders' Corner, and the interview is followed by a hedge fund seeding News Review.

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, Spartan, a Canadian platform, talks about its numerous underlying emerging managers.
