New data from Hedge Fund Research show that emerging markets hedge funds manage about $223 billion in assets, the highest estimate since the hedge fund data firm began tracking the fund group. Some $340 million in net assets were committed to EM funds during the third quarter after $800 million came in during the second quarter. The two quarters followed seven consecutive quarters of outflows with EM managers losing $9.6 billion along the way.
With the official start of the holiday shopping season upon us, U.S. retailers are gearing up to compete for higher traffic, greater sales volumes and increased competition with Amazon.com. The online retailer accounted for just more than one-fifth of all revenue among publicly traded U.S. retailers during the fourth quarter of 2016, and one-third of the 10 largest earners.
Vanguard Group is at the center of the flight to passive equity, acting as a black hole near active management's solar system, pulling more of its assets into its gravity field, crushing their higher fees into fractions of their former selves. The investment behemoth's mutual fund business has always been its foundation, but at $3.4 trillion in U.S assets, growth is slowing, likely because there is only so many assets to go around.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
