Aksia’s 2014 Hedge Fund Manager Survey Reveals Manager Perspectives on Economic Conditions, Derivatives Trading, Counterparty Risk, Financing Trends, Capital Raising, Performance, Transparency and Fees

Aksia LLC (Aksia), a specialist hedge fund research and portfolio advisory firm, recently released the results of its 2014 Hedge Fund Manager Survey (Survey).  This third annual survey solicited hedge fund managers’ views on topics in three principal areas: The state of the economy and the broader market; the state of the hedge fund industry (particularly with respect to counterparty risk and central clearing, fund financing and capital raising); and hedge fund investor concerns with regard to performance, transparency and fees.  The Survey also drew insights on trends by comparing this year’s responses to those from Aksia’s first two surveys.  See “Aksia Survey Reveals Hedge Fund Managers’ Perspectives on AUM Composition, Fees, Liquidity, Advertising Practices, Transparency, Reporting and High-Frequency Trading,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 6, No. 3 (Jan. 17, 2013); and “Aksia’s 2012 Hedge Fund Manager Survey Reveals Managers’ 2012 Predictions Regarding Tail Risk Hedges, Portfolio Transparency, Movement of Balances Away from Counterparties and More,” Hedge Fund Law Report, Vol. 5, No. 2 (Jan. 12, 2012).
