Data provider HedgeCo and private equity firm Holding Capital Group are joining forces to seed and support emerging hedge fund managers.
Their new joint venture, HedgeCo Investments, will offer managers accepted into its incubation program a variety of services, including capital introduction, trading platforms, reporting technology, consulting, attorneys, service providers and marketers. Selected managers will also have access to HCI’s New York and West Palm Beach, Fla., office facilities.

Prior to being accepted into HCI’s program, emerging managers will be subjected to rigorous due diligence, the firm said.
