Hedge Fund $2 Trillion Assets
Hedge Fund Investors Confident Assets Will Hit $2 trillion
Hedge fund assets may hit their pre-financial crisis peak this year, according to the people in a position to make that happen.
A Credit Suisse Group survey of about 600 institutional investors show a confidence that the industry could be managing $2 trillion by the end of December, an increase of 25% this year. Much of that growth will come in the Asia-Pacific region, with 61% of survey respondents saying they are increasing, or might increase, their allocations to the region.
While they’re ready to pour more money into the asset class, institutional investors are more wary, and more selective, than they were before the financial crisis. Due-diligence takes more time, with 65% saying they spend more time investigating managers before they invest. The due-diligence process now takes almost six months, 30% longer than 18 months ago.
