A.W. Jones has proven success in identifying managers early in their lifecycle. Our Emerging Manager Class offers exposure to approximately 8 to 12 emerging and niche managers from the Flagship Fund. This class aims to outperform the Flagship Fund in absolute terms, although with potentially higher volatility, and to secure favorable terms and future investment capacity.
We believe that emerging managers provide several benefits:
Invest in less liquid and more inefficient market niches with the potential for higher alpha generation
More nimble, resulting in lower position entry/exit costs
More reliant on performance fees rather than management fees to compensate the manager/team, resulting in an emphasis on performance
