Pension Plans Increase Proportion of Hedge Fund Assets They Hold

By Hedge Fund Insight staff

One of the best surveys in the hedge fund industry comes from the consultant Aksia. The 2015 survey, conducted during November and early December of 2014, includes responses from 187 managers representing over $1 trillion in hedge fund assets under management.  What makes it particularly worth reading is that the questions posed vary each year to take account of the areas of interest and concern at the time the survey is conducted.

The 2015 survey asked about the dynamics of the assets coming from different investor types.
