MARHedge Closing Hedge Fund Publication, P.S. We Are Hiring

Nov 9 2006 | 1:32pm ET

MARHedge, the first independent hedge fund newsletter, will publish its last issue on Nov. 20. According to former publisher and current columnist Greg Newton, who posted the news on his blog, Naked Shorts, the move comes following Euromoney Institutional Investor’s acquisition of MARHedge. MAR’s editorial staff was notified on Tuesday that it would be laid off; other segments of the firm’s business, including its conferences unit, will be merged into Euromoney’s Institutional Investor unit.

According to Newton, “a handful of former MAR staffers will go with that operation. Some other more junior staff may also find slots at II, although they were told there are no guarantees.”

Calls to editors and reporters at MARhedge went unanswered.

Euromoney, and especially the II division, publish a slew of pricy hedge fund publications, including EuroHedge, Absolute Return, Alternative Investment News and Alpha.

Editor’s Note: Attention all former MARHedge reporters and editors – FINalternatives is hiring. You can see the job listing here. If interested in working for us (freelance, part-time or full-time), please send a note to dbrennan@finalternatives.com
