Given the recent volatility of traditional asset classes and the potentially dim economic and financial market outlook hedge funds are being considered. On the other hand, some investors have been disappointed with recent hedge fund performance. The presentation looks at four ways how hedge funds can make money in uncertain times and benefit from market dislocations. These encompass “decorrelation by systematic trading strategies before or in a dislocation”, “exploiting alpha and value opportunities after a crisis”, “substitution of traditional risk factors over a cycle” and “stable returns over a longer-term horizon”. Finally some hedge fund industry developments, challenges and opportunities for investors and providers are being discussed.
