CNN Money- SEI Study: Hedge Fund Managers Face…
A new study conducted by SEI (NASDAQ: SEIC) in collaboration with Minard Capital LLC finds that hedge fund managers must rethink their business models, provide tailored solutions, and offer multi-faceted client communications. This amidst a climate in which investors are heavily scrutinizing the industry's value proposition. SEI's insights are based on the company's sixth annual global survey of institutional investors, as well as insights from nearly 50 hedge fund managers, investors, and consultants who participated in roundtable discussions in New York and London organized and moderated by Minard Capital.

Opalesque New Managers Q&A with Rachel Minard
Opalesque: What are your recommendations to emerging managers in terms of marketing strategy?
