Deutsche Bank 2019 Alternative Investment Survey Details Observed and Expected Performance and Allocation Preferences (Part One of Two)

Deutsche Bank Global Prime Finance (DB) recently completed its 17th annual global alternative investment survey. This year, DB analyzed responses from 425 allocators that manage or advise roughly $1.74 trillion of hedge fund assets. This article, the first in a two-part series, details the portions of the DB survey report that cover observed and expected performance and allocation preferences, including with respect to environmental, social and governance products; initial and target allocation sizes; and minimum fund size. The second article will cover additional allocation preferences, including with respect to investment vehicles, region and strategy; the continued decline in hedge fund fees; and early stage investing.
