Deutsche Bank 2019 Alternative Investment Survey Details Additional Allocation Preferences, Fees and Early Stage Investing (Part Two of Two)

In its 17th annual global alternative investment survey, Deutsche Bank Global Prime Finance (DB) analyzed responses from 425 allocators that manage or advise roughly $1.74 trillion of hedge fund assets. This second article evaluates the portions of the DB survey report that cover additional allocation preferences, including with respect to investment vehicles, region and strategy; the continued decline in hedge fund fees; and early stage investing. The first article covered 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. For coverage of previous editions of DB’s annual survey, see our two-part coverage of the 2015 survey: Part One (May 21, 2015); and Part Two (Jun. 4, 2015); and our coverage of the 2013 survey: “Deutsche Bank Survey Describes the Contours of the Nontraditional Hedge Fund Product Market: Investor Appetite, Performance, Marketing, Fees and More” (Jan. 23, 2014).
