New Managers April 2013

Editorial

Dear Opalesque Reader,

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

Following the Emanagers Index performance for March and this month's list of new funds in the EManagers database, is an analysis produced by our research unit on the performance of funds that invest in currencies in EManagers DB Insights.

In Focus, we look at the way hedge funds tend to use social media (part 1), K&L Gates' recommendations on social media best practices (part 2), and the main drivers for hedge funds to engage in social media (part 3) as seen by Henrietta Hirst of Parex PR. This month's 47N series, "Barbarians at the Gate", tells you all about investor-level gates. Stephen Tirrell of Bingham McCutchen talks about the current legal landscape for those looking to raise funds in the U.S. in Rules and Regulations. We reveal the latest developments for Mariner, NewAlpha, IMQ and Scout Global in Seeders' Corner News Review. And Apex Fund Services explains its new free office facilities and fund incubation services in Servicers' Spot.

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, Theron de Ris talks about the Eschler Recovery Fund; and Louis Fortin and Francois Magny talk about RDA Capital's Mons Regalis Multi-Strategy LP.
