Pensions & Investments surveys institutionally oriented firms to collect data about worldwide assets managed in hedge funds. The universe that responds to the survey changes each year, which can affect year-to-year comparisons.
This is the 11th year P&I has surveyed hedge fund managers.
Data for hedge fund firms that do not respond to P&I's survey are collected from the firm's ADV Investment Advisor Disclosure forms filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission when available.
In previous years, P&I also asked money managers to provide information about assets managed in hedge funds of funds worldwide. The question was discontinued this year because some large firms would not break out their hedge funds-of-funds assets from their total assets under management.
