New Hedge Funds Fall Flat In First Half of 2013

bigNew York (HedgeCo.Net) – New hedge funds fell flat in the first half of the year, posting the second-worst fundraising total in a decade, according to new Absolute Return research.

In total, 43 managers raised $8.2 billion, compared to an $11 billion mark one year earlier. The tally frequently approached the $20 billion range in the years before the financial crisis.

Highlights include:

  • The biggest fundraiser this year is Morgan Stanley spinout PDT Partners, led by Peter Muller.
  • Former Icahn deputy Alex Denner’s healthcare-focused Sarissa Capital and former JPM North American CIO Irene Tse’s macro launch are also among the leaders.
  • One big name disappointment is Mariner Investment Group, which mustered a relatively weak $197 million for its well-publicized Mariner Incubation fund.
