Boston is on course for a resurgence in hedge fund launches this year—both from portfolio managers departing big names and starting their own shops and family offices looking to debut offerings.
The later trend was evidenced at the Boston Family Office Association’s networking event earlier this month which took place in Boston Financial District’s Vanderbilt Kitchen & Bar and attracted a number of family offices looking to set up their own portfolios, and also up their allocations to the alternative asset class.
Amongst some of the heavy-hitter industry veterans in the Bay State to roll out funds this year are ex-Harvard University endowment duo Satu Parikh and Marco Barrozo who will launch HSQ Capital, focused on commodities and fixed-income; and former Windhaven Investment Management manager Stephen Cucchiaro, who recently launched global long/short equity offering 3EDGE Asset Management.
