Private Equity, Hedge Funds & Investment Vehicles in the US

The Private Equity, Hedge Funds and Investment Vehicles industry continues to become an increasingly integral part of institutional investor portfolios and a mainstream part of the asset management market. Increasing demand from institutional investors has contributed to the surge in industry assets under management and revenue over the past five years. Over the next five years, institutional investors will continue to increase their allocations to alternative asset classes and strategies, while greater retail access to these same asset classes and strategies through ETFs and mutual funds will further drive up industry AUM and revenue.

This industry is composed of private equity funds, hedge funds, closed-end funds, unit investment trusts and other financial vehicles. Entities in this industry manage securities or other assets on behalf of shareholders, unit holders or other beneficiaries to achieve high returns on targeted investments. This industry excludes insurance and employee benefit funds, open-end investment funds and trusts, estates and agency accounts.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
