New OCIO Launches, Targeting Clients in Smaller End of E&F Market

“Whether OCIOs… or hedge funds – there’s always room for spinouts and new launches,” adds Chris Cutler, founder of search firm Manager Analysis Services. However, both search consultants say there are things new OCIO firms should keep in mind.

Cutler adds he would recommend any new shop have at least an initial slate of clients lined up before the launch.

“It’s such a crowded field already that they need to have a way to distinguish themselves and not take the risk of launching and not succeeding,” Cutler adds.
