79% of institutional investors to raise hedge fund exposure this year

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia:

A survey by alternative assets event producer Context Summits has found that a huge majority of institutional investors plan to increase allocations to hedge fund managers in 2016. Context Summits surveyed at least 200 investors who attended the event Context Summits Miami 2016 and found that some 79% of them are committed to raise their exposure to hedge funds this year.

The poll also found that 96% of investors plan to allocate in two or more funds in 2016. In total, nearly 500 investors and 450 managers representing over $1.5tln in combined assets attended the three-day conference, which connects private fund managers with qualified investors via one-on-one meetings.

"This survey provides invaluable insight into allocation trends for 2016 and offers a snapshot of the conversations between managers and allocators at our Summit," said Mark Salameh, co-founder and chief executive officer of Context Summits. "We believe this year presents a unique opportunity for many managers to distinguish their story and attract institutional capital, particularly considering findings in this survey coupled with the current macro environment and broad range of strategies represented at our Summits."
