This insightful poll provides fund stakeholders with a review of 2012 governance issues, emerging practices and answers to common questions.  Presented through a questionnaire format, seven questions were posed to DMS directors to capture their market intelligence collected from industry stakeholders.  The poll reveals trends relating to board composition, regulatory concerns such as FATCA, as well as enhancements in due diligence inquiries. It is the first industry research of its kind that provides quantitative and qualitative analysis for widely accepted focal points of hedge fund directors.
