MFA White Paper: The Role of Alternative Investments – Second Edition

Posted on October 16, 2018

MFA first issued The Role of Alternative Investments in Today’s Capital Markets three years ago. The paper looked at hedge funds’ contributions to capital markets, the growth of institutional investor allocations, and Dodd-Frank’s impact on the industry.

Now MFA is releasing a second edition of this white paper. Ten years after the crisis, the work of Dodd-Frank implementation is largely complete and industry AUM is at an all-time high. This paper highlights the valuable role hedge funds continue to play in today’s capital markets – whether it’s by increasing liquidity or helping institutional investors manage risk and volatility in their portfolios.
