Alternative investment research firm The Barclay Group has acquired the Alternative Asset Center database, making it the world’s largest database of hedge fund performance.

Waksman also said the database will “sustain an update velocity exceeding 90% in 30 days.”
The acquisition of the AAC database follows close on the heels of research firm Morningstar’s purchase of the Altvest hedge fund database from InvestorForce in July.
