Friday, January 06, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - The UCITS Alternative Index Industry Survey for Q1 2012, which will be released Monday the 9th of January 2012, focuses on two very important aspects of UCITS hedge funds, the first being the introduction of the AIFM Directive and their implications on UCITS hedge funds, the second being the increasing importance of UCITS hedge funds platforms.

Key Findings

A majority of respondents are willing to increase their allocation to CTA, Equity Market Neutral and Volatility strategies.

More than two thirds of respondents believe that global UCITS hedge funds assets under management will continue to grow in 2012.

40% of respondents believe that the introduction of the AIFM Directive will have a positive impact on the growth of UCITS hedge funds.

Over 70% of respondents believe that the UCITS hedge funds platform market share will continue to grow.

From an investor perspective the most important advantages of UCITS hedge funds platforms are Infrastructure and counterparties, Legal setup and Risk Management.
