NEW YORK, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- S&P Capital IQ and New Legacy Group have announced this year's finalists for the second annual Global Emerging Manager Awards (GEMA), an industry-sponsored event that recognizes successful emerging hedge fund managers from around the world, and provides a forum for sharing best practices among colleagues within the institutional investor community.
In addition to the awards ceremony, this year's GEMA event will also host a panel discussion on "Paths to Success," offering the viewpoints and experiences of several successful hedge fund managers who were recent emerging managers themselves. Panelists will include Richard "Mick" McGuire, founder of Marcato Capital Management, an activist/value-focused firm, in 2010; Scott Ferguson, Managing Partner and Portfolio Manager of Sachem Head Capital Management, a firm he started in 2012; and Alex Klabin, Co-Founder, Co-Chief Executive Officer, and Portfolio Manager at Senator Investment Group, which launched in 2008.
"This year's group of GEMA candidates was outstanding; we had entrants from 31 cities in 15 countries," commented Jay Zachter, Managing Director at S&P Capital IQ.
