Hedge Fund Marketers
Hedge Fund Marketing Statistics
My background is in capital raising and third party marketing.
Some interesting statistics on hedge fund third party marketing firms came out of the recently released 2009 Preqin Global Hedge Fund Investor Book. These include:
- Over 80% of all third party marketing firms have their home office based within the United States
- Canada had double the number of third party marketers as London (8 and 4% respectively)
- While Hong Kong only holds around 1% market share within the third party marketing industry I expect that Asian based third party marketers will grow to 5-8% of the industry over the next 5 years.
- A total of 21% of all third party marketing firms are based in New York, keeping close to both institutional investors , service provider partners and potential hedge fund clients.
- 17% of all third party marketing firms have more than one office location
- Of those firms with more than one office location 52% of all third party marketing firms based in the United States have at least one “international office”
