Opalesque New Managers Q&A with Rachel Minard

Opalesque: What are your recommendations to emerging managers in terms of marketing strategy?

Rachel Minard: Start-up hedge funds need to approach their growth in a pragmatic way.

The first step is to do with a sober holistic assessment, which is to say ‘do I have a strategy that in and of itself is unique enough to secure market share?’ The next one would be ‘who is the natural buyer for this type of fund and is there interest in this type of strategy?’ More importantly, ‘who are my peers in that strategy and how have they done?’ You need some context to gauge where you would fit, where you could put a toehold into the business. *cont'd*
