Deutsche Bank today announced the results of its ninth annual Alternative Investment Survey, which was conducted in January 2011 by the Hedge Fund Capital Group within the Bank’s Global Prime Finance business. Investor entities worldwide, representing more than $1.3 trillion in hedge fund assets, participated in the industry’s largest and longest standing comprehensive hedge fund investor survey. Respondents include public and private pensions, foundations and endowments, sovereign wealth funds, funds of funds, private banks, investment consultants and family offices.
“Despite a challenging market environment over the past year, the hedge fund industry continues to trend upward, with investors predicting a fourfold increase in inflows into the industry in 2011,” said Barry Bausano, Co-Head of Global Prime Finance and Head of Equities in North America.
“Investors’ responses indicate a sustained, strong recovery,” said Jonathan Hitchon, Co-Head of Global Prime Finance. “Bullish sentiment on equities, flows, and industry dynamics were the clear messages conveyed by the respondents to our survey.”
"Hedge funds now hold a widely accepted role within the overall asset management industry,” said Anita Nemes, Global Head of Capital Introduction. “More than 50% of investors have increased their hedge fund assets under management last year, further cementing the industry’s place in the mainstream.”
