Preqin finds the largest and oldest hedge funds have most of the capital

Friday, May 31, 2013

Beverly Chandler, Opalesque London: Preqin’s latest edition of their monthly Hedge Fund Spotlight finds that 61% of the capital in the hedge fund industry is managed by the 100 largest fund managers, who have combined assets under management of $1.4tln.
