The October 2013 issue of New Managers starts with the latest EManagers indices results and a list of the new funds in the EManagers database. It ends with the customary review of the latest news, views and findings relevant to the space in News & Perspectives.

In Fund Profiles, Pacome Breton talks about the Frey Multi-Strategy Fund, a fund of hedge fund with a quantitative edge, and Vincent Au talks about the Gondor Partner fund, a U.S.-focused long/short equity fund. Ifina, a fund formation company, State Street's Irish hedge fund operations and I.A. Englander give Opalesque their perspectives in Servicers' Spot.
