Hedge Fund Awards 2014

As holders of the Australian Placement Agent of the Year Award for 2013 we are delighted to again be recognised in 2014 and would like to thank everyone who voted for us. We are constantly striving to improve the service we provide our hedge fund managers and investors alike and it is gratifying to have those efforts recognised. 2013 has been a busy year for Strategic Capital Services with the addition of two New York based equity long/short managers as cli- ents. The first new client signed runs a US equity market neutral strategy and the second runs US financials and US generalist long/ short funds. In 2014 we will be looking to add an event driven manager and potentially a macro/CTA manager. 2013 has been a strong year for hedge fund capital raising however the post global financial crisis trend of investors allocating predomi- nately to large multi-billion dollar managers has continued, posing a more challenging environment for small and medium sized funds. Against this background it is more important than ever to target in- vestors efficiently and effectively. We find our use of state-of-the-art technology for our CRM, emailing and website management and tracking assists us greatly and provides potential investors with a central investor portal through which they can easily access all rel- www.acquisition-intl.com 2014 International Hedge Fund Awards Strategic Capital Services Limited evant information required for assessing managers. Combined with regular direct contact with investors we look to keep our managers front and centre with potential investors and enhance their asset raising potential. With numerous studies highlighting the outperformance of manag- ers managing less than $1bn and some large managers posting dis- appointing results in 2013, 2014 should see more investors starting to focus on smaller and medium sized managers if they are genuine- ly interested in adding alpha to their portfolios. We are seeing more investors focusing on smaller managers however there are still many who won’t look at a manager until they have at least $500-800m under management. If the trend of 2013 continues those investors focused on large managers will experience diminishing returns as more money chases an increasingly crowded space. At Strategic Capital Services we continue to focus on working with a small number of high quality managers that generate attractive long term returns while effectively managing risk. We work with experi- enced teams with complementary skills, strong investor alignment and institutional quality infrastructure. By outsourcing capital raising to us, managers get to focus on what they do best, profitably manage money. The result is substantial asset growth and more efficient use of managers’ time.
