AIMA Hedge Fund Confidence Index (HFCI)
The AIMA Hedge Fund Confidence Index (HFCI) is a global index which measures the level of confidence that hedge funds have in the economic prospects of their business over the next 12 months. A product of AIMA, Simmons & Simmons and Seward & Kissel, the HFCI is calculated at a specified point in time with the index published at the start of each quarter.
Based on a sample of 272 hedge funds (accounting for approx. US$1.9 trillion in assets) that participated in the industry poll taken throughout the week ending 31 March 2023, the average measure of confidence (in the economic prospects of their business over the coming 12 months) is +16.3, marking an improvement in sentiment since the end of last year, albeit trending slightly below the historical average (see HFCI scores overtime).
