New Hedge Funds Coming


    Around half of hedge fund firms intend to launch a new hedge fund by the end of next year and most are reporting rising assets, says a global survey by PwC and the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA. ‘Distribution Disrupted – A Spotlight On Alternatives’ found 61 per cent of fund managers worldwide reported rising assets in their hedge funds, while more than 80 per cent of firms that have liquid alternatives funds said those products were also growing. Forty-four per cent said they would launch a new hedge fund by the end of 2016. In the same period, almost one-third of U.S. managers and 50 per cent of UK managers said they would roll out a new liquid alternatives fund.
