Emerging Managers: Raising A Hedge Fund in 2009
Thursday, May 21, 2009
Noon to 1:30PM Eastern Time 10AM to 11:30am Mountain Time
11AM to 12:30PM Central Time 9AM to 10:30AM Pacific Time

Times may be tough, but emerging managers in the hunt for fresh money need not despair. Institutional investors are expected to channel hundreds of millions of dollars in the next few years to back new and emerging hedge fund managers. Among the big guns that appear primed to do so: California Public Employees’ Retirement System, New York State Common Retirement Fund and Teachers Retirement Systems of Illinois.

It’s not hard to see why. Many brand-name firms–those famous for consistently generating marketbeating performance–have effectively closed their doors to new relationships. Institutional investors left out in the cold need to search elsewhere for the top-performing funds of tomorrow. Will they back an established shop with a mediocre track record but a promise to do better? Or will they place their chips on an emerging manager that appears to have the talent and investment formula to become the next Citadel Investment Group or Millennium Management?

With more and more investors choosing the latter, you need to make sure that you get your fair share of emerging-manager dollars. Thomson Reuters, publisher of the popular HedgeWorld Web site, has put together a 90-minute Webinar featuring an all-star cast of speakers to show you how.

In this special 90-minute Webinar you’ll learn the answers to such questions as:

  • Which institutional investors and advisory firms have allocations to new and emerging fund managers?
  • What is the best way to get a hearing with these investors? What are the pros and cons of hiring a placement agent?
  • What kind of track record do I need to raise a fund with institutional backing?
  • How important is it to find an anchor investor? What special terms should I offer to land one?
  • Should I consider a joint venture, sponsored fund, or other non-traditional fund structure?
  • What are the top qualities that investors look for in new and emerging managers? What red flags scare them away?
  • What special partnership terms and conditions, if any, should I offer to entice investors to back our fund?
