University endowments are proving fertile ground for training hedge fund managers.

Stonehorse is a fund of hedge funds manager, focusing on emerging long/short equity and event-driven managers. Opening with between six and eight managers, the fund of funds could eventually boast a roster of as many as 15, most with less than $500 million in assets and less than a three-year track record, according to HedgeFund.net.
Stonehorse will charge a 1% management fee and 5% performance fee. There is a $1 million minimum investment requirement.
