InvestHedge Forum 2013

The InvestHedge Forum, which this year was themed Capitalising on Convergence, bought together more than 400 fund of funds, hedge funds, investors and other industry professionals, addressing the issues at the interface between hedge funds and their investors.

The Forum focused on the increasing convergence between funds of hedge funds and the consulting community; the convergence between traditional long-only and alternative investing; and the rise of the 'retail' hedge fund investor. Where there is convergence, there is always divergence, and good hedge funds have always been able to take advantage of these idiosyncrasies.

Other issues discussed at the forum included; institutional investors are helping themselves to hedge funds and the way they are accessing hedge funds has changed. So too have hedge funds that want money from these investors. In this rapidly-changing world, does performance still matter or is it just about risk management and asset gathering?

What investors expect from hedge funds and what they will ultimately receive will depend entirely on their beliefs around hedge funds and their purpose in the portfolio. The InvestHedge Forum offered the ultimate self-help guide to hedge fund investing.
