Transcript

  • 1. Do Emerging Managers add value By: Peter Urbani, CIO, Infiniti Capital, Feb 2009
  • 2. <ul><li>Emerging Manager Funds (defined as those Hedge Funds Funds which are less than 36 months old and have less than $300m in AUM) tend to be run by highly motivated, entrepreneurial and focused managers. In addition, the exploitable opportunity set they have identified in the marketplace is more likely to persist over the short-term. All of this translates into excess returns or alpha of up to 400bp per annum. </li></ul><ul><li>Infiniti Capital seeks to capture this excess alpha through its two Emerging Manager Portfolios - Invenio and Conquistador II. </li></ul>Why an Emerging Managers Portfolio ?

  • 22. Supporting Literature “ Emerging managers have particularly strong financial incentives to create performance and may be more nimble than established ones. We find strong evidence of outperformance during the first two or three years of existence . Emerging managers, narrowly defined as having a maximum life of two years, generate an abnormal performance of 2.3% relative to the later years. This difference is statistically and economically significant.” Aggarwal and Jorion - The Performance of Emerging Hedge Fund Managers “‘ Young’ funds outperform seasoned funds after adjustment for risk of failure. Investors should buy ‘young’ funds in the first three years of their existence. Michael Howell, Managing Director, Crossborder Capital - The Young Ones “ Emerging managers, defined as managers with less than a two year track record, exhibit compelling absolute return profiles and have typically outperformed the overall hedge fund market .” HFR Asset Management - Emerging Manager Out-Performance: “ Our conclusion is that despite the biases found in the data, investors may gain enhanced returns by investing in young hedge funds if proper due diligence is completed. Hedge funds under three years of age tend to perform better than do older hedge funds without necessarily adding to the volatility of returns. ” Lazard Asset Management - Early Performance In Hedge Fund Managers “ From Jan. 1, 2004, through Dec. 31, 2005, 167 &amp;quot; emerging managers &amp;quot; — those who started funds in 2003 and had $30 million to $250 million in assets — outperformed two leading hedge fund indexes . The class of 2003, or the 167 managers measured on an equal-weighted basis, returned 11.39 percent in 2004, compared with the MSCI equal-weighted index, at 6.55 percent, and the Credit Suisse/Tremont investable index, at 5.31 percent.” Mayer &amp; Hoffman Capital Advisors - Investing in Newer Hedge Funds P.21
