Problems in Capital Raising for Hedge Funds: A Battle of the Quants (Video)

Last year I reported that despite large inflows of money into hedge funds, it was a treacherous environment for smaller hedge funds. What is the current state of capital raising? What types of hedge fund strategies are attracting capital? How have hedge funds evolved subsequent to the global financial crisis? 

Bartt Kellermann of Global Capital Acquisition is well positioned to answer these questions because he connects investors with quant hedge funds. Consequently, Kellermann has his finger on the pulse of hedge fund capital raising and successful quantitative finance strategies. Furthermore, he is the motivating force behind the global quant industry’s favorite event, Battle of the Quants, next taking place in New York City on 23–24 April. Beyond featuring outstanding practitioners and advice on strategies, the event will also include the well known “Man vs. Machine vs. Quantimental.”
