EY 2019 Survey Explores Growing Importance of Talent Management, Diversity and Inclusion; Use of Technology, Big Data and AI; and Cybersecurity (Part Two of Two)

EY recently published its 13th annual Global Alternative Fund Survey, which looks at broad trends in the alternative investment industry, including ever-shifting allocation preferences, growth prospects, talent management and the impact of technology. The survey juxtaposes the perspectives of hedge fund and private equity (PE) managers, on the one hand, with those of their investors, on the other. It also compares how hedge fund managers and PE managers address key issues. This two-part series presents EY’s key findings, along with additional commentary from one of the survey’s authors. This second article explores talent management; diversity and inclusion; use of technology, big data and artificial intelligence; cybersecurity; and potential industry disruptors. The first article highlighted allocation preferences; investor and manager business priorities; and asset growth, including non-traditional hedge fund products, separately managed accounts and responsible investing. See also our coverage of EY’s 2014 Survey; 2013 Survey; 2012 Survey; and 2011 Survey.
