Nordic Investors May Boost Hedge Fund Investments

Sep 15 2010 | 2:42am ET

Hedge funds looking for eager allocators may want to consider looking north. A new survey shows that Nordic investors plan to boost their hedge fund investments this year.

More than four in 10 investors polled by SEB said they planned to increase their hedge fund allocations this year, while 46% say they’ll keep their allocation steady. Only 14% expect to cut their hedge fund investments this year.

Most investors in the region—some 74%—favor direct hedge fund investments, with only 35% using external advisers and 46% using external due-diligence consultants to choose their managers. Many also have no problem hiring smaller funds, with more than three in 10 saying that they have no minimum asset size.
