Hedge Fund Incubator says Small Funds Outperform

Smaller can be better 

Seeders and managers are advocating smaller funds as candidates for outperformance in the current markets, at a time the industry's largest managers are handing back money to investors.

Jeroen Tielman, CEO and founder of hedge fund incubator IMQubator, highlighted research from data monitors PerTrac showing small funds with assets of under $100m have outperformed rivals holding over $500m in 13 of the last 16 years.

Additionally, funds started within two years of a measurement point had cumulative returns of 827% since 1996, far outpacing the 350% from funds that were more than four years old.
