Hedge funds predict institutional inflows, survey says


A new survey of hedge fund managers found that more than 70% anticipate that institutional investors will be the dominant source of new capital in 2011, while four years ago only 20% of managers believed the same, according to Howard Altman, co-CEO of Rothstein Kass and principal-in-charge of the firm’s Financial Services Group.

In the “2011 Hedge Fund Outlook: Brighter Day?” survey, more than 85% of hedge fund managers expect institutional investors to be more averse to high concentrations of illiquid portfolio assets. General partner investment will also be a greater consideration for investors evaluating hedge fund allocations,
