Beverly Chandler, Opalesque London: Credit Suisse has published its annual Global Hedge Fund Investor Survey, in which it analysed the responses from close to 550 institutional investors, representing $1.03tln of hedge fund investments, on a number of topics.

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.

The firm gave this year’s survey a suitably upbeat title, "Reaching New Heights", seeking to reflect the optimism expressed by institutional investors towards the prospects for industry performance and growth during 2013.

Robert Leonard, Managing Director and Global Head of Capital Services at Credit Suisse commented: "Institutional investors are clearly expressing more confidence in risk assets in this year’s survey and appear less worried about left tail risk events or macroeconomic uncertainty.
