Prime broker NorthPoint Trading Partners has an eye on the growing hedge fund-like mutual fund market.
The ConvergEx Group unit has launched a new business serving alternative mutual funds. The new group will work both with mutual fund firms and hedge fund managers interested in launching hedge-like products in mutual fund form.
"Today, alternative mutual funds represent less than 1% of the $12 trillion mutual fund market," NorthPoint CEO Doug Nelson said. "Since we began offering select services to launch alternative mutual funds back in May, we have seen a significant uptick in demand. We believe that trend will continue and our expectation is that alternative mutual funds will reach over 5 percent of the market within the next 10 years."
NorthPoint has named Jay Jacobs head of the new group. Jacobs joins from Merlin Securities.
