Hedge Funds in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Hedge Funds

Consistent growth in assets under management has immensely benefited the Hedge Funds industry over the five years to 2018. During the period, the assets that industry operators managed grew in large part due to the appreciation of numerous asset classes operators invested in. As a result, industry revenue is anticipated to increase during the period. Over the five years to 2023, industry revenue is forecast to continue increasing. Industry AUM is forecast to continue increasing at a consistent rate, partly due to the diversification benefits that hedge funds provide. However, increased regulation stemming from the global financial crisis and an escalating focus on the industry's tax structure have the potential to harm industry profit margins.
