  1. 2011: State of the Hedge Fund Industry<br />
  2. Hedge Fund Market Impressions in 2011<br />Through the first five months of 2011 (Jan-May), the industry brought in $75b – the heaviest inflow since 2007<br />Despite increased inflows, performance has been lackluster – returns were at just 2.1% through May<br />The average hedge fund lost 1.22% in June 2011<br />Regulations continue to play a big role and will affect operational and technology decisions for the remainder of the year<br />Cloud services is the biggest trend in hedge fund technology<br />
  3. What challenges are funds facing today?<br />Performance is always a key challenge for hedge funds and investment firms<br />Increased competition is fueling challenges around asset-raising for firms of all sizes and strategies<br />Uncertainty about hedge fund regulation (e.g. Dodd-Frank) remains<br />
  4. What are we seeing from new start-ups?<br />2011 is continuing the trend from last year in terms of increasing numbers of start-up hedge funds entering the space<br />Firms are often smaller in size than in previous years<br />Many are using managed account structures<br />Long/short equity continues to be the most popular strategy among start-up funds<br />
  5. Advice for smaller funds entering the market?<br />Have a plan – especially around your technology infrastructure and risk management practices<br />Create a technology roadmap that takes your firm’s future growth into account<br />Put processes in place to function as if you were a large, enterprise organization (even if you are not!)<br />At the end of the day, your success will be measured by your performance<br />
  6. Are investor requirements changing?<br />When it comes to technology, investors want to see:<br />Disaster Recovery System<br />Business Continuity Plan<br />Role of the technology provider is changing accordingly<br />No longer just keeping the lights on<br />Drawings of systems and processes are not sufficient<br />Service providers being pulled into due diligence meetings<br />
  7. How is the cloud changing the hedge fund space?<br />The technology otherwise known as the “cloud” has been in place for years<br />CRM and OMS tools have been utilizing the cloud for many years<br />Private cloud services are now being embraced by the hedge fund community and its investors<br />It is important to understand the difference between Public and Private clouds – as they are two entities entirely<br />Funds should educate themselves and their investors about the cloud, particularly cloud security<br />
  8. Is the cloud a passing trend or here to stay?<br />Hedge funds will continue to adopt cloud solutions, particularly as a result of their increased flexibility and scalability<br />Easy to increase storage, networking, bandwidth, etc.<br />Large firms are even building their own private clouds<br />In 3-5 years, it would not be out of the question for 100% of hedge funds to be utilizing the cloud in some way<br />
