The Evolution of Hedge Funds and the Future of Asset Management
With almost $3 trillion in assets -- and the freedom to invest opportunistically worldwide -- hedge funds have become one of the most important market-moving forces of the last few decades. This panel brings together leading founders of hedge funds and asset managers for a conversation about the evolution of the industry. Some of the questions that will be addressed: With more hedge funds than ever before, how can a manager generate meaningful returns? Are fee structures likely to change significantly with increasing pressure from institutional clients? In this highly personality-driven business, how does the role of a founder change as a fund grows -- and can a fund succeed the person who created it?
