With inflows of $4.8bn last month, the six main categories of liquid alts tracked by Morningstar remain small, but they brought in 61 per cent more money than they did in January 2013.
This is one of the many reasons to watch the rise of “liquid alternatives”, mutual funds that offer hedge fund-like strategies in a vehicle that has traditionally been used mainly for investing in equities and bonds and can be bought or sold any day of the week.
Apple's senior vice president of operations, Jeff Williams, has met with U.S. Food and Drug Administration chief Dr. Margaret Hamburg and Dr. Jeffrey Shuren, who oversees the agency's approval for medical devices, to discuss "mobile medical applications," the paper reported, citing FDA records.
Hedge fund managers are clinging to draconian restrictions that limit investor redemption requests to once a month or even once a quarter and then allow them to dawdle in meeting those redemptions.
Redeeming funds can be a problem and investors want quicker access.

RBC estimated in August Apple could boost its FY14 EPS by $4 by raising $55B in debt to finance additional buybacks.
Icahn, who owns over $2.5B worth of Apple shares (less than a 1% stake), has said he would "test the waters" regarding a proxy fight if his calls for a bigger buyback were ignored.
At the same time, Apple says its board and management are "thoughtfully considering options for returning additional cash to shareholders and are currently seeking input from shareholders as part of the Company’s regular review." Tim Cook stated in October Apple would hold off on making new capital allocation decisions until early 2014.
Apple defends itself by stating competitive conditions and the company's pace of innovation "require unprecedented investment, flexibility and access to resources."
In its proxy filing for its Feb. 28 annual meeting, Apple (AAPL) urges shareholders vote against Carl Icahn's Prop. 10, a "non-binding advisory resolution" calling for Apple to spend at least $50B on buybacks in FY14 (ends Sep. '14).
Agree with you, it is hard to argue with the sttistics and with the facts.
