Results of EY’s 2021 Global Alternative Investment Fund Survey of Managers and Investors (Part Two of Two)

For the 15th year, EY conducted its annual global alternative investment fund survey. In the third quarter of 2021, it interviewed 210 hedge fund and private equity fund managers and 54 institutional investors to gather their perspectives on a wide range of topics and trends relevant to the private fund space. This second article in a two-part series explores EY’s findings on talent management and the evolving work environment; diversity, equity and inclusion; and responsible investing. The first article covered alternative investment fund performance; strategy and allocation preferences; evolving product offerings; special purpose acquisition companies; digital assets; outsourcing; and other evolving trends.
