EY 2020 Survey Compares Perspectives of Institutional Investors and Private Fund Managers (Part One of Two)

EY recently released its 14th annual Global Alternative Fund Survey, which, as in its prior surveys, compares and contrasts the perspectives of institutional investors with those of hedge fund and private equity fund managers. This two-part series outlines the survey’s findings. This first article explores how managers performed and serviced their investors during the coronavirus pandemic; the long-term impact of the pandemic on managers’ operations; managers’ use of automation, technology, data analytics and FinTech; managers’ strategic priorities; investor allocation preferences; and evolving fund and fee structures. The second article will address the rapidly evolving responsible investing landscape and the growing importance of remote operations, as well as diversity and inclusion in talent management. See our coverage of EY’s 2019 Survey, 2018 Survey; 2017 Survey; 2016 Survey; and 2015 Survey.
