Five Articles Highlighting the Global Nature of the Hedge Fund Industry

Although the core of the hedge fund industry remains in the U.S., the space has become increasingly global in nature. According to a report from Prequin, as of November 2019, hedge fund managers based in North America had $2,783 billion in assets under management (AUM); those based in Europe had $673 billion in AUM; and those located in the Asia-Pacific region had $121 billion in AUM. In light of the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S., this issue of the Hedge Fund Law Report features five articles from 2020 that highlight the global nature of the hedge fund industry. Next week (the week starting November 30, 2020), the HFLR will resume regular publication of new content focused on regulatory, compliance and related considerations applicable to hedge fund managers in the U.S., the E.U. and beyond.
