Advent survey finds 75% of investors want to see research management systems in place at hedge funds

Friday, September 20, 2013

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva for New Managers:

Advent Software, Inc., a leading provider of software and services for the global investment management industry, conducted a survey on how investors select hedge funds.

The survey, called Pitch Perfect: How Investors Choose Hedge Funds sought to determine what investors look for when making new hedge fund investments, and what fund managers should avoid doing when making their pitch. A total of 152 responses came from investment advisors, funds of hedge funds, family offices, foundations, endowments, and pension plans in early 2013.

Advent found that hedge funds need a strategic edge to attract investors. 75% of investors said they wanted to see research management systems in place at the hedge funds they look at.

"As they’re continually overwhelmed with an unprecedented volume of market data and their time is stretched increasingly thin, investors are seeking a solution to help better organize, manage, and leverage information —and an effective research management system could meet this need," says the Advent announcement.
