Despite a challenging year for the hedge fund industry in 2011, our survey results forecast a cautiously optimistic outlook for the year ahead. Expectations for hedge fund industry growth remain positive as respondents, on average, anticipate assets increasing 12% to $2.13 trillion by year-end. Perhaps most importantly, we see willingness to redeploy capital and reduce cash balances built up in 2011. We anticipate that this capital will be reintroduced to the market in the second half of this year.
