Safe bet: Industry revenue will rise due to increased optimism and demand



Abstract

Hedge Funds

Over the past five years, the Hedge Funds industry has fared well thanks to the continued satisfaction of institutional investors with regard to the performance of hedge funds. While the industry has received a considerable amount of criticism regarding its performance in comparison to US equities, an increasing amount of industry professionals have called into question the relevance of benchmarking hedge fund returns exclusively against equity performance. Nevertheless, this criticism has hampered the industry's traditional fee structure. Over the next five years, the industry is expected to continue performing well; however, increased regulation and compliance costs will likely hamper revenue growth over the period.

Companies in this industry pool investments, securities or other assets on behalf of shareholders, unit holders or other beneficiaries. This industry comprises hedge funds and does not include mutual funds, real estate investment trusts or exchange-traded funds. Additionally, funds in this industry are considered establishments, while fund managers are considered enterprises.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
