The firm says that the questions are designed to reveal institutional investors’ current views on the growth and return prospects for the hedge fund industry; their preference and allocations plans across various strategies and regions and their views on key new trends and developments in the industry. Credit Suisse adds that this year’s survey also explored in closer detail preferences and investing trends amongst pensions and other institutional investors.
