Funds of Hedge Funds
Funds of hedge funds can be highly effective at diversifying risk over a number of hedge fund styles and managers. The goals and value added of funds of funds managers will be presented. However, funds of hedge funds have been suffering outflows, as the extra fee burden can make these vehicles less attractive when compared against multi-strategy hedge fund or a portfolio of hedge funds built by an investor. Specific comparisons between funds of funds, multi-strategy funds, and direct investment in hedge fund portfolios will be explored. The changing nature of the hedge fund industry since 2008 will also be discussed.
