We're also excited to partner with MITIMCo, the investment office of MIT. In order to help the emerging manager community more broadly, they created emergingmanagers.org, a website for emerging manager stockpickers. For those looking to start a stock-picking fund, or those just looking to learn about how others have done it, I highly recommend the site. You’ll find essays and interviews by successful emerging managers, service providers used by MIT's own managers, essays MITIMCo has written for emerging stock-pickers, and more. Check them out at mitimco.org/global-investor today!
