Hedge funds work: Look at the scoreboard

The hedge fund industry has had many achievements in the past 25 years, since the formation of the Alternative Investment Management Association in Europe, and its subsequent growth into a truly global organization. But its most important achievement for the investors who have supported the industry is this: the MSCI World Index has risen about 400% over the past quarter of a century; the Hedge Fund Index has risen about 1200%, and with about half the volatility. Hedge funds work. So said Jack Inglis, AIMA’s global chief executive, at the opening of the AIMA Australia Hedge Fund Forum on September 15 in Sydney. But Inglis and Paul Chadwick, AIMA’s local chair, said there remained the constant need for education of investors about the true strategies and risk return profiles behind many hedge funds.

More than 300 people attended the Forum, with international speakers including: Sandy Rattray, the chief executive of Man AHL, Steve Kuhn, the CIO of Pine River Capital, and Philippe Jordan, the president of Capital Fund Management.
