Summary:

As we begin 2014, it looks like the global hedge fund industry is in for another year of strong growth and performance, at least according to the nearly 500 institutional investors that responded to our latest survey. Investors are predicting hedge fund industry assets under management to grow by an average of 12% this year to reach an all-time high of $2.8T, with an upper quartile forecast reaching $3T. If accurate, this average forecast would mean at least an additional $300B for the industry in 2014, coming from both performance and inflows of fresh capital.
