Baronsmead surveys changing trends in hedge fund insurance


Baronsmead, the independent specialist risk consultant and insurance broker to the investment management industry, is conducting a survey among UK hedge fund managers on insurance trends and attitudes at a time of growing focus on insurance risks in the sector.

The survey – the results of which will be announced shortly – aims to assess how hedge fund managers’ views on insurance are evolving at a time of widespread reform and change throughout the financial system, a raft of new regulatory measures relating to hedge funds and increased focus by investors on operational and risk management issues.
