RMF Investment Management has launched RMF Global Emerging Managers, a hedge fund seeding vehicle, which is being billed as a change from the traditional approach to seeding emerging hedge funds.
The fund incorporates a revenue-sharing scheme whereby underlying managers will share with investors a fixed proportion of their gross revenues. The fund has made its first two investments and plans to increase its portfolio to between eight and 10 investments over the first 12 to 18 months.

RMF was founded in 1992 and now manages more than $25 billion in total assets.
