Summary:

Our view entitled ‘from black box to open book hedge fund trust and transparency’, validated by conversations with Europe’s hedge fund investors, regulators, managers and other industry participants, is that there is room for further improvements related to conflicts of interest and operational controls to allow the sector to truly fulfil its growth potential.

As allocations to hedge funds increase, trust and transparency will now be crucial factors in winning investors’ favour for allocations of assets.
