Executive Summary

The hedge fund industry is in the midst of change, with institutional investors becoming an increasing proportion of assets under management. In a recent survey of managers, the majority of respondents believed that pension funds will be their primary source of capital by 2020. With this, the ways in which hedge fund investments are accessed is evolving significantly.

Key to this is a focus on improving transparency and customization. Investors require improved transparency to better their understanding of the investments made by hedge fund managers on their behalf, and to better assess their liquidity. Customization, both in investment mandate and commercial terms, is increasingly sought to ensure hedge fund allocations better complement investors’ wider portfolios.

Managed accounts are key to this evolution within the hedge fund industry. They increase transparency and give investors more control, which allows better assessment of performance and liquidity. Such structures also enable investors to work with managers to develop more optimal, customized hedge fund solutions.

Operational costs (both setup and ongoing) are a key consideration in the use of managed accounts. Infrastructure providers are playing a key role in managing costs, as the industry evolves. These thirdparty service providers enable operational costs to be reduced and for a wider range of investors to access the benefits of managed accounts. As their offerings develop further, both investors and managers stand to increasingly benefit.

With the increasing prominence of institutional investors and their demand for customized solutions, we expect managed accounts to continue to increase in popularity and become a crucial component of the hedge fund industry.
