Hedge Fund Investors Split Over Performance Satisfaction

Institutional investment consultant bfinance conducted a snap poll of 260 investors last week to gauge their views on their current portfolios against the backdrop of the Covid-19 epidemic.

Of the survey respondents which allocate to hedge funds, satisfaction with performance is split. 4% of respondents say they are 'very satisfied' with the performance of their hedge fund portfolio and 20% say they are 'somewhat satisfied'. A further 20% say they are 'not satisfied' and another 7% say that they don't yet know the performance of their entire portfolio of hedge funds. 48% of respondents don't allocate to hedge funds at all.

55% of the survey respondents employed some kind of hedging tool for equity downside protection and 14% of these said they were 'very satisfied' with the results of those hedges so far (27% are somewhat satisfied).

A third of respondents have made some minor dynamic or tactical adjustments to their portfolios and 11% have made significant dynamic or tactical adjustments. Liquidity risk is the biggest worry for investors over the coming weeks.
