Ex-BrunnerInvest analyst prepares launch of fund of long/short equity hedge funds for spring 2014 Bruno Schneller

Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva

Hedge Fund Research said last week that the number of FoFs continued to decline to 1,842 in the second quarter (2Q2013), the lowest level since 2005; that the total hedge fund industry capital managed via FoFs declined to 26.8%, the lowest level since 2001; and that FoF liquidations exceeded FoF launches for the 9th consecutive quarter, dating back to 1Q11.
