Number of New Hedge Fund Launches Rises

After a slow year, the pace of new hedge fund launches is beginning to take off.

"It's a promising environment for new hedge funds," said Alex Ehrlich, the global head of Morgan Stanley's prime services business. "Money is coming in from seasoned investors, many of whom are preparing to redeploy capital."

In 2008, more than twice as many hedge funds liquidated as opened.
