New Managers January 2014

Editorial

Dear Opalesque Reader,

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

2014's first issue of New Managers starts with a list of the New Launches in the hedge fund arena, a roundup of the latest manager news in Emerging Manager Bulletin, and the latest seeding developments at Deutsche, NewAlpha and SkyBridge in Seeder's Corner.

Ian Hamilton discusses the probable return of the hedge fund investor and the debatable necessity of regulation and reporting in the first installment of his new monthly column, the Scotstone Column.

In Fund Profiles, Shorepath Capital's manager talks about a new long-biased equity fund, MitonOptimal's about an upcoming commodities CTA, and Blueshift Capital's about a six-month old volatility fund.

We have the customary review of the latest news, views and findings relevant to the space in News & Perspectives, and a review of the latest products and services useful to emerging hedge funders in Servicers' Spot.

Don't forget, subscribers can access past issues of New Managers in Opalesque's Archive here: http://www.opalesque.com/Archive-New-Managers.html.

Please do contact me if you have any news or views or if you want to contribute. Wishing you a Happy 2014!
