Our latest research surveying Hedge Fund CFOs which found that according to their predictions, operating costs will increase by an average 8.1% to meet increased data transparency demand among investors, has been featured at leading hedge fund and alternative investment publications HFM Connect, HF Week and Alpha Maven.

The report, which surveyed 100 hedge fund CFOs located in North America, Europe, the UK and Asia with an average of $7.2 billion in assets under management, also found that investors will on average expect to receive updated strategy level performance data every 12 days as well as that over four-in-ten CFOs expect investors will require live or daily updates on strategy level performance data and 31% anticipating having to supply this weekly.

The pieces quoted Jonathan White, our Global Head of Fund Sales, on the findings. “Demands for more data is a growing phenomenon among investors globally. Hedge funds started becoming more transparent some years ago but to meet increasing data requests they must either invest substantially to build systems and technology to manage the data in-house or outsource.

“With the in-house route fundamentally complicated and costly, outsourcing partners can deliver high quality services to fund managers, who can then focus on managing assets.”

The articles also highlighted that, according to the research, 38% of those surveyed said they will outsource more functions, while 26% will retain their existing balance between outsourcing and insourcing.
