Annual Hedge Fund Investor Survey

Annual Hedge Fund Investor Survey

 

Once again our colleagues at Hedgeweek spent the back end of last year compiling and analysing feedback, thoughts and remarks gathered from the world of hedge fund investors, with a view to anticipating trends in the demand for hedge fund products. The findings can be articulated around three angles:

Emerging managers are quantitatively less in demand, but they have a broader range of options:

During the course of our first survey two years ago, we had found that 70% of respondents said they were open to investing in emerging managers in principle, while our follow up exercise the next year revealed only 25% had done it in practice. In reality, a variety of models hide behind those numbers

The line dividing hedge funds and their investors is no longer clear cut:

Entities that have traditionally invested in hedge funds are creating their own platforms, while successful hedge funds effectively act as platforms to emerging portfolio managers they bring in house. Feedback from investors reflects these converging models, and should be factored into any analysis of investor appetite, especially for smaller managers

Europe is emerging as a fertile ground:

European allocators are planning to increase their share of hedge fund investment to a larger extent than their US or Asian counterparts. We have asked those concerned to what extent this related to AIFMD, to improvements in the economy, and what that meant in terms of their ongoing commitment to this industry
