New Hedge Funds Launched in 2009Here is a great video put out by Bloomberg on how hedge funds are being started almost every day. The news caster is quoted as saying that 8 hedge funds are being started in July 2009 which will manage over $2B total. While I'm sure that this reporter is trying to stress that these are not all small hedge fund shops, I can assure you that there are far more than 18 hedge funds launching in July. Capital for these hedge funds is coming from seed capital providers, large banks and institutions looking to benefit from the cyclical nature of the markets. Many of these new funds are using managed accounts to provide banks with more transparency and less liquidity risk.
