Deutsche Bank today announced the results of a survey which examines the expanding role of hedge funds within the wider asset management industry. From Alternatives to Mainstream analyses how hedge funds have evolved to run non-traditional products such as long-only and liquid alternative strategies to meet new demand from institutional investors.
Institutional investors are moving away from traditional asset allocation in favour of a risk-based approach, incorporating hedge funds into their core portfolio rather than as a separate alternatives allocation. This removes constraints on allocations to alternatives, and investors are now choosing to work with trusted hedge funds on new products such as liquid alternatives and long only strategies.
Key findings of the study, which surveyed both investors and managers, include:
Daniel Caplan, European Head of Global Prime Finance at Deutsche Bank, said: “This study highlights the expanding relationship between institutional investors and the hedge fund managers that have built trusted partnerships and a reputation for delivering strong risk adjusted returns.”
Anita Nemes, Global Head of Capital Introduction at Deutsche Bank, said: “An ever increasing number of hedge fund managers are diversifying their product range as they seek to provide differentiated solutions to institutional investors.”
The study received responses from 200 investor entities worldwide managing more than $625bn in hedge fund assets and 60 global hedge fund managers representing $528bn in firm wide assets.
