Exploring the alignment of interests between hedge fund managers and investors

Published: 04 December 2018

In September 2016, together with RSM, we published “In Concert” which highlighted the broader set of arrangements designed to improve the align of interest between hedge fund managers and their investors. Central to the work on this paper (and the subsequent findings that were published), included an industry wide survey (distributed to our members in Q4 2015) into the design of manager remuneration, investment terms and other methods that hedge fund managers cultivated their relationship with investors.

Three years on, we would like to revisit the themes from this paper and publish a new paper which examines to what extent these trends continue as well as any new data points that point to emerging trends that demonstrate how hedge funds and investors are aligning interests to best meet their mutual needs.


We would be grateful if you could take a few moments to address the following set of 40 questions which explore the various arrangements that managers of hedge funds have in place to best align their interests with their clients (investors). Please note that any responses and subsequent data gathered from this survey will only be presented or shared in the aggregate. Further, any related information that we include in this paper will not be attributed nor attributable to any specific firm or person.
