Hedge Funds

AIMA promotes benefits of hedge funds in French translation


The Alternative Investment Management Association has published a French translation of its leaflet on the value of the global hedge fund industry.

The original English-language version was published in March. It seeks to explain the social and economic value of hedge funds.

It includes AIMA’s estimate that the hedge fund industry employs 300,000 people worldwide, directly or indirectly. It also sets out to debunk some myths about hedge funds — such as that the industry is unregulated and wishes to remain that way.

The French version is to be distributed to regulators, policymakers and the media in France,
