As institutional investors seek new approaches to generating alpha, many are looking at two key areas of growing interest in hedge fund investing – emerging managers and ESG factors. For an allocator with large dollar commitments, allocating to smaller AUM managers can be a challenge. For ESG, some of the key issues include the mixed quality and quantity of sustainability data.
