Institutions Still Love Hedge Funds

Aug 11 2010 | 10:52am ET

Hedge fund may be suffering from outflows and poor performance, but institutional investors remain a bright spot on their fundraising horizon.

Almost a third of institutional investors plan to boost their hedge fund investments over the next 12 months, while less than half that number plan to cut their hedge fund exposure, according to a new survey from Preqin. What’s more, better than two-thirds of institutional investors say they are happy with the returns produced by their hedge fund portfolios.

A fair number of institutions still have money waiting on the sidelines, with a quarter telling Preqin that they have not reached their current hedge fund targets.

According to Preqin, it all adds up to “modest” flows for the rest of the year and a big uptick next year.
