From Simon Kerr


As activist investing has grown in size and acceptance Hedge Fund Insight has given it more coverage. We continue to provide coverage of what has become a core strategy, as it has matured. This month you can see the Activist Top Ten and the highlights of last year‘s activity. Read about activism from different  perspectives – one from the experience of a communications specialist (Montieth & Company) and one from the perspective of an advisor during shareholder activist situations (Spotlight Advisors). You can take on board how activism has developed through the infographic we have published. HFI publishes how-to and best practice articles. In the area of activism this has been done through the feature “Best Practice for Activists Dealing with the CEO“.


At the last re-design of Hedge Fund Insight a stream for marketing of hedge funds was introduced. This has been a consistent topic since the site was launched in July 2012. Further I consider it one of the topics which has had very good quality contributions. I recommend that readers use “marketing” as a search term in the website’s search facility to have a good look at what has been published on the topic here, or go to the Marketing section.

These are the first ten headlines for the topic:
