NewManagers April 2012 - Opalesque's Emerging Managers Monitor

Welcome to the April 2012 issue of New Managers, Opalesque’s monthly monitor of emerging – and re-emerging – hedge fund managers.

In Statistics, Peter Urbani examines the performance drivers of the Opalesque Emanagers Index by treating it as if it were a portfolio or a fund of funds. The results are instructive and give a fairly clear indication as to where the excess performance of the Index has come from, he says.

We have four new sections this month. Fundana, an investment advisor to several funds of hedge funds, gives an analytical view of real past investments in emerging managers in the Fundana Series. 47 Degrees North Capital Management, a pioneer in early-stage hedge fund investing, will tackle corporate governance in the 47N Series. Christopher Kelley of the Harvest Fund, a new seeding fund, talks to Opalesque in Seeders Corner, and so does Matt Nelson of Omgeo LLC, a financial operations expert, in Servicers Spot.

In Focus, we look at some findings and talked to industry experts – at Preqin, HedgeMark, and AI Advisors – to uncover the mysterious structure that is called “managed account”; and find it may be more mysterious than expected, as much of the assets in managed accounts are not reported.

ML Capital describes the mechanisms of a UCITS funds platform in Q&A. Infovest finds opportunities for seeding funds in a harder terrain in The Analytical View. See who has started out on his or her own lately in Launches. And a myriad of hot and current topics are discussed in Perspectives.

In Profiles, meet the managers of Stonehenge’s newest multi-strategy hedge fund, Logica’s U.S. equity long/short fund, and JJN’s event driven fund.

I hope you enjoy our fourth issue of NewManagers.
