Emerging Managers

2014-10-11

Challenges
Emerging managers can benefit greatly from institutional allocations – and institutional investors can benefit greatly from the diversification and performance offered by emerging managers. The catch is that emerging managers frequently have small teams and limited resources to get their strategies in front of the very investors who need them. In addition, there are many firms competing for the same allocations with similar-sounding strategies across the globe and it is difficult for managers to see what the competition is claiming.
