Selection of the emerging managers taking part in the second series of Hedge Fund Lions’ Den has followed a rigorous procedure.
First a long list of emerging managers was drawn up using a variety of sources including consultants and suggestions from members of the Hedge Funds Review judging panel for the European single manager awards 2014.
This long list was then researched and a more detailed shortlist presented to the judging panel for comment.
From the panel responses a final shortlist of eight names was created. Managers were then approached to take part in the programme.
To qualify for the first series, an emerging manager needed to be based in London, have assets under management of less than $250 million and a track record of under five years.
