Why emerging funds need new strategies and partners

Being a start-up hedge fund in today’s market environment is mired with challenges. The institutional investor marketplace has undergone a seismic shift. Public and private sector pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and insurance companies are all increasing their exposure to hedge funds. These investors are allocating huge sums to hedge funds and it is no surprise that global assets under management (AUM) controlled by hedge funds are likely to surpass the $3 trillion mark for the first time by year-end 2015.

Deutsche Bank’s 13th Annual Alternative Investment Survey, published in March 2015, found AUM controlled by $5 billion-plus managers grew by 141% since 2008, compared to 53% for firms with less than $5 billion.
