Editorial

Dear Opalesque Reader,

Welcome back to New Managers' new user-friendly, real time format!

The 2013 Year-End 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 Seeders' Corner, we report on the latest developments at NewAlpha, Mariner, Sun Hung Kai, and in China. In Launches, we find out about the recent maiden fund launches. In Fund Profiles, read about Midwest Advisors' real estate long/short fund, Strategis' market neutral strategy, Monte Capital's long/short equity fund and SA2's global fundamental quantitative macro fund. Finally, we hear about Meridian's new acceleration platform for emerging funds in Servicers' Spot.

Wishing you happy holidays!
