Advertorial: In this seminar, Professor Robert Kosowski asks: what are the effects of investment constraints on hedge fund returns? The main finding that emerges from his analysis is that the size is related to past performance positively; and negatively to future performance. Persistence in performance declines significantly when fund size and share restrictions such as notice, redemption and lockup period are incorporated into rebalancing rules. Large funds close to or above $1 billion of assets under management account for more than 60% of the hedge fund AUM but they neither provide statistically significant alpha on average, nor do they exhibit performance persistence.
