Investors to grow alternative assets teams

August, 2014 Print



A survey by alternative assets data provider Preqin has found that 28% of institutional investors expect to increase their alternative assets teams within the next two years.

Preqin head of real assets products, Andrew Moylan, said: “Many investors have indicated to Preqin that they intend to increase their allocations to alternatives, and make greater commitments over the next year. As a result, many investors have recently grown their dedicated investment team to source new opportunities, and a number also intend to grow their teams over the next few years.” The survey also found that hedge fund investors are least satisfied with their investments over the last 12 months, with 27% saying hedge funds have underperformed. Private equity investors are the most satisfied, with 51% positive on performance. Private equity investors are also most likely to use an internal team to source new investment opportunities, with 41% doing so compared to 27% for hedge fund investors, 25% for real estate investors and 14% of infrastructure investors.
