One in Four Hedge Funds Are Hiring in Research

From The 2013 Hedge Fund Compensation Report:

“Firm size had little bearing on compensation, with similar earnings reported by employees from the smaller funds as those from firms with $1 billion under management.

“Hiring trends remained roughly on par with the previous year, with 24 percent of firms reporting hiring within research departments, 20 percent adding to operations, and 12 percent seeking to bolster legal departments.”

Primarily a North American based report, the data also includes responses from the UK and around the world.
