Family offices expand hedge fund portfolios


Nearly 90% of family office executive directors have said that they are highly likely to place additional money into hedge funds this year, according to a new survey published by Rothstein Kass Family Office Group.

The new report entitled “Raising Capital from Single-Family Offices,” said that hedge funds are already an important investment for single-family offices with 85% of the 151 offices surveyed currently invested in hedge funds as only about half report an active private equity allocation.

The most popular hedge fund strategies among family offices are long/short equity (53%); distressed (49%); arbitrage (33%); managed futures (25%)
