As part of a regular exercise, we scan the NFA register for new and closed manager. The below report will be developed over time and will be a recurring feature. Among the new funds we note New Holland Capital, a large hedge fund advisor that registered. Among the closure, while it is old new by now, Amplitude, Blenheim, Hawksbill and Centurion are noteworthy names.

In December, 25 manager applied for new registrations with the NFA. Most of them are located in the USA. Hong Kong was the second most popular location to start a new CTA. This largely follows the distribution of managers. Not all of the managers are new, but have decided to register a specific entity.
