We look for emerging “edge fund managers”. We back portfolio managers who we expect to generate alpha, and who typically have spun out of an institution or who have managed a private portfolio (i.e. family office) which they are seeking to institutionalize with third-party capital.
We believe Alpha requires an Edge. An edge exists because a market is dislocated or inefficient, the portfolio managers are first class and the strategy is well designed and differentiated.
Please make sure you:
1. Are an alternative investment portfolio manager (hedge fund, private equity, private debt, VC or Niche) with a top quartile or top decile track record.
2. Have an “edge” – (dislocated market, first class team, differentiated strategy).
3. Expect or have secured capital commitments of at least $10m for seeding your fund, and are putting your own ‘skin in the game’.
