On February 14, Nat Kellogg, CFA, President and Director of Manager Search, was quoted in an Institutional Investor article covering a recent report by the Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) and KPMG regarding trends and themes in the hedge fund industry beyond the coronavirus pandemic.
The article, “Hedge Funds Are Starting to Win Over Allocators Once Again,” summarizes the findings of the report regarding allocators’ returned attention toward hedge funds to navigate increasing volatility in the equity markets. As Nat was quoted, “2021 proved challenging for alpha, particularly in the long-short equity space, (…) but we think that the year ahead is likely to be a little bit more exciting.” The report found that institutional investors may be seeking out long-short equity hedge fund investments based on the challenges of the current market landscape, including geopolitical tensions and the lingering uncertainty of the pandemic. As Marquette discussed in a recent newsletter, “Equity long/short strategies can improve portfolio diversification, help protect capital in periods of market weakness or heightened volatility, and increase overall risk-adjusted returns.”
