2011 Global Hedge Fund Symposium Luxembourg

General Information

Event date :

05 April 2011

The Hedge Fund industry has rebounded from the dark days of the financial crisis in 2008 with 45% of hedge funds reporting positive returns in excess of 20% in 2009. While 2010 delivered less spectacular gains, there is renewed confidence within the hedge fund industry with assets under management beginning to approach their all-time high once again.

One of the major impacts of the financial crisis has been that the “big” have continued to get bigger, with 90% of all asset flows during 2010 going to the biggest hedge funds. This trend is driven by a number of factors: the larger hedge funds tend to have an established long term track record and a robust, institutional level infrastructure. Will this trend of the “big” continuing to get bigger give rise to new risks in the future? This remains to be seen. Going forward, the biggest challenges for the hedge fund industry will be to find a balance between investor and manager demands while at the same time navigating through the waves of regulation coming from both Europe and the US.

During this symposium we will:

  • Discuss the past and future for the hedge fund industry
  • Debate the waves of regulation coming from both Europe and the US
  • Provide insights from the Ernst & Young Global Hedge Fund Survey
  • Look at Switzerland as a chosen domicile for hedge fund managers
