Multi-managers: Delivering for investors


How to make the multi-manager approach both relevant and vital for the next generation of investors

Ever since the late 1960s, funds of hedge funds (FoHFs) have played a prominent role in the development and evolution of the hedge fund world.  Indeed, over the following 40 years, the managers of managers running commingled FoHFs had become arguably the single most important type of allocator to hedge funds.

Since 2008, however, the picture has changed markedly.  While hedge fund assets overall rebounded strongly and surged on to new highs, the traditional funds of funds did not - with their assets continuing to languish at or around the same levels.

The Investor Solutions Forum roundtable meeting, recently held in London, brought together a variety of players, including speakers from some of the longest-established firms in the business together with niche players, broader asset management firms and newer firms. They talked in compelling ways about why the sector is still so important to investors – and the significant role it can still play in the hedge fund world.

BNP Paribas Securities Services is pleased to have been actively involved in this event, which generated constructive discussion on the future of the industry. Below you will find a link to a detailed report on the discussion, entitled “Multi-managers: Delivering for investors” and a two page summary of the key take-aways that appeared in the January 2017 issue of HFMWeek.
