12 Dec 2013, Margie Lindsay, Hedge Funds Review
Hedge Fund Lions' Den continues with encounters, part one. This is a chance for each manager to have quality time with the lions.
First to have a one-on-one session is Neil Meadows from Laurentia Funds, talking about how to grow and expand his fund with Stanley Fink at ISAM.
Next in the queue are Christina McGuire and Gordon Eichhorst from Aperios Partners Investment talking with Luke Ellis at Man about investor interest in emerging markets.
Aberdeen Asset Management's Andrew McCaffery explains to Meadows what investors want from the funds in which they invest.
Aperios has a chat with Fink about capacity constraints while McCaffery talks with Strategis Capital Management about prioritisation.
The last two sessions see Ellis discussing trade objectives with Meadows while Eichhorst and McGuire are quizzed by McCaffery about investment style.
Episode five, which airs December 13, continues the one-to-one conversations. The lions make their decision on how to allocate to each manager on December 16 in episode six.
