A small but significant number of U.S. institutional investors favor European hedge funds, despite the uncertainty regarding alternative investments regulation across the Atlantic.
According to a new Preqin report, 17% of American institutions indicate a preference for European hedge funds. And those that do invest in European managers devote an average of one-fifth of their hedge fund portfolios to them.
“When U.S. institutional investors are searching for single-manager strategies… many are going to Europe directly to access the best funds and opportunities in the region,” Preqin’s Amy Bensted wrote in a March report.
Indeed, most of the institutions investing in Europe shun funds of hedge funds, with 68% investing directly.
Unsurprisingly, U.S. investors favor the best-known and most-successful hedge fund managers in Europe: The five attracting the most U.S. institutions are Lansdowne Partners, Brevan Howard Asset Management, GAM Holding, Lazard Asset Management and The Children’s Investment Fund.
