  • Seward & Kissel


Driven by our commitment to understanding the dynamics of the hedge fund marketplace, each year Seward & Kissel conducts a hedge fund study of newly formed hedge funds sponsored by new U.S.-based managers entering the market in 2012.  The study covers the 2012 launches of Seward & Kissel clients; we believe that the number is large enough to extract a representative sample of important data points that are relevant to the hedge fund industry.  The study analyzed investment strategies, incentive allocations/management fees, liquidity and structures, as well as whether any form of strategic capital was raised.
