Across our country and around the world, institutional investors, including pensions, hospital endowments, and non-profits, rely on hedge fund investments to help support retirement security, medical research, and the important work done by foundations and charities. In fact, hedge funds help secure the retirement of more than 26 million teachers, firefighters, and other public employees by helping pensions navigate all market conditions and meet long-term financial obligations.”
