Greg Newton, a pioneer of hedge fund coverage, dies at 53


It was with great sadness recently that we learned of the sudden death of Greg Newton, the former president of Managed Account Reports and the man who launched MAR Hedge, the world’s first proper hedge fund newsletter.

Originally from New Zealand, Greg went on to spend most of his career in New York, where he ran the U.S. operations of Metal Bulletin, including MAR, which was ultimately acquired by Euromoney Institutional Investor. He died at the prematurely early age of 53 – apparently en route to Florida, where he was planning to embark on a new life.
