Which of the next generation pods will be most successful?

MM/SM debates aside, which of the ex. Citadel/MLP funds (Jain, Freestone, Kodai, Woodline, Holocene, among others) do you see having the most potential in the future? What do they bring most to the table relative to the big 4 today? (Better technology/culture/nimbleness, offset by lower scale)? How do you think they differentiate either for LPs or for new employees

nope...brandon has guys running sector books under him and he has centerbook sizing up best ideas...when he launched brandon described it to me as something between pod-shop and single-PM fund...to me just sounds like pod-shop with 1 pm per sector. i don't know any of his pm's, just know BH...great guy...hell-of-a run so far...crushing it.

mike / karl have a similar structure at woodline...but wouldn't say it's as tight/scaled as holocene...yet...they will get there...know them but not as close with those 2 as BH...smart guys but would think hard bosses.

i think nev is a great human and incredible pm...but need to catch up with him...how big is kodai nowadays?

let's see with jain and freestone...todd and ravi are great guys...i've never met bobby. have known paul for years, he'll be a great resource for folks there.

someone below mentioned cinctive...i don't like rich schimel and their pms seem mediocre...will leave it at that.

 

Please cinctive sucks this has to be like a tier 4-5 platform right? At least what my HF friends tell me
