Hedge fund fees hindering investment by pension schemes
(HedgeWeek) – High management fees are a key hindrance preventing pension schemes from investing in hedge funds, followed closely by a lack of transparency regarding additional costs, according to the latest survey by AMX.
The research by AMX, an open architecture marketplace for the buying and selling of asset management services, surveyed 200 individuals with investment responsibilities for pension schemes. It reveals that other obstacles to investing in hedge funds are: insufficient risk reporting (32 per cent), difficulty of comparing fund performance (26 per cent) and inability to govern individual funds (25 per cent). – pictured Oliver Jaegemann, Global Head AMX
