UK: FCA publishes hedge fund survey

The Financial Conduct Authority yesterday published a survey of UK hedge funds: see here (pdf). The survey notes that approximately USD 470bn of hedge fund assets are managed in the UK, with 450 hedge fund management firms registered with the FCA. The survey itself is based on data from 49 management firms, which together manage USD 481bn of hedge fund assets globally, of which USD 206bn is managed in the UK. The survey finds that equity strategies are the most popular among the funds in the survey and that institutional investors have become the dominant type of investors in hedge fund vehicles.
