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 with the below questionnaire 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 need. As with all our questionnaires, the subsequent research derived from the findings will be more powerful,  the richer the data set, so we urge anyone who is taking this questionnaire to answer every relevant question.


Please note that any responses and data gathered from this survey will only be presented or shared in the aggregate. Any related information that we include in this paper will not be attributable to any specific firm or person. If you have any questions related to this survey, please do not hesitate to contact Tom Kehoe, Managing Director, Global Head of Research and Communications.
