Preqin: 88% of investors plan to maintain or increase hedge fund allocations in next 12 months

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva:

The overall outlook for investors in alternative assets is positive, says Preqin, as most investors wish to either maintain or increase their exposure to alternatives (private equity, hedge funds, real estate, infrastructure) in the next 12 months or in the longer term. This applies to hedge funds investors too.

Preqin, an intelligence provider for the alternative asset industry, has just issued its latest Investor Outlook report for alternative assets for the second half of 2013, after interviewing 450 investors based in Europe (42%), North America (40%), Asia (9%) and other locations. Those investors include pension funds, insurance companies, asset managers, foundations, banks, family offices, and more.

Even if 26% of investors in hedge funds were not happy with the returns in the past year, this is the lowest level of dissatisfaction since 2008. Still, 60% of the interviewed investors have redeemed in the past year due to performance concerns.

However, there are still many investors who have a significant allocation to hedge funds, which suggests that they "do not allocate solely to generate returns, but also because of the liquidity, diversification and volatility dampening that the asset class can provide," says the report.
