New Managers June 2014


Dear Opalesque Reader,

Welcome to the June 2014 issue of New Managers!

Ian Hamilton offers some suggestions on how small funds with good track records - the kind of funds he calls "Truffles" - can go about to raise additional funds in this month's Scotstone Column. In Fund Profiles, David Lorber of FrontFour Capital talks about his value event driven fund, Andrew McGrath of Burren Capital Advisors discusses the current high level of M&A activity, and Troy Dixon of Hollis Park Partners describes the opportunities in the $13.5 trillion structured products market. These profiles are followed by a Guest Article from Andrew Beer of Beach Capital, who exposes the hedge fund fee conundrum. In Seeder's Corner, we hear about Swiss Asia's plan, Emergence's last deal and ABS, a fund of funds that invests in new managers. And in Servicers' Spot, Bob Guilbert of Eze Castle talks about what new hedge fund managers should and should not do.

You will also find our usual list of recent maiden Launches in the alternative funds arena, and roundups of the latest news and views relevant to the emerging hedge fund community in Emerging Manager Bulletin and Perspectives.
