2013 Hedge Fund Outlook
Some gains, more pains
Current world developments and macro-economic trends signal that 2013 may be a challenging year, both in the U.S. and abroad. But with assets under management now surpassing 2007 levels, the hedge fund industry has some positive momentum as it heads into the New Year and seems in good position to respond to whatever may lie ahead.
Given marketplace uncertainties, however, careful choices and deliberate action may be needed to help ensure continuing business success. With this in mind, Deloitte’s 2013 Hedge Fund Outlook explores three strategies that will likely shape hedge fund industry priorities in the New Year and beyond:
- A keen focus on responding to the evolving regulatory landscape and meeting the expectations and demands of regulators and investors
- The tactical pursuit of growth opportunities, perhaps including customized product offerings appealing to investors as well new investment and distribution strategies
- A renewed focus on operational excellence across many business functions in order to help reduce costs and risks
We expect successful hedge funds to adapt where needed, continuing to drive the kinds of changes that have made hedge funds one of the most profitable investment vehicles in the marketplace.
