Hedge Fund Research Trends

Hedge Fund ResearchThe hedge fund industry is intensively competitive. Depending on who you ask or who you cite there are now between 10,000 and 15,000 hedge funds now in the industry. This rivalry comes to a head while hedge funds compete for large investments by institutional investors. Institutional investors spend months analyzing the investment processes and information/research advantages and resources that hedge fund managers have at their finger tips to give them an advantage in the markets.

To provide their portfolio managers and analysts with unique research and insights hundreds if not thousands of hedge funds are using a handful of niche research groups. There are over 50 of these well established niche trading research groups in the US and EU, and this business is thriving right along with the hedge fund industry as a whole.

Not to be confused with hedge fund due diligence which is the analysis of hedge fund managers and their businesses, hedge fund research groups help hedge fund portfolio managers and traders gain unique insight into a wide range of markets, instruments and asset classes. I have met several of these research firms through the Hedge Fund Group (HFG) and writing here in this hedge fund blog.

Quick question: Do hedge fund trader's use the work done by the researchers and make decisions based on them? I always believed that traders did their own research.

Every trader is different and follows different research and trading methodologies. Some use niche research reports or consulting firms others do their own research. Hope this helps.
