The debate around hedge funds is often polarizing and features strong views, opinions, conjectures and criticisms. While recent levels of risk-adjusted returns have been in line with history, the absolute level of performance has been suppressed. Understandably, this has led to some criticisms growing louder with increased concerns on the cost/benefits.


We believe a good portion of the suppression is related to the corresponding market regime, one that has been significantly influenced by policy and regulation and that the next decade will be different for hedge funds and continue to see the complementary benefits of a hedge fund allocation.


In our latest papers we look to answer the critical questions related to hedge fund investing, reviewing hedge fund performance over the prior two decades and the strategic benefits of an allocation.
