Building on previous alternative studies
released in 2012 and 2013, SI uses rigorous
quantitative data and in-depth surveys
and interviews to explore the broad topics
surrounding the continued growth of
registered alternative products.
Alternatives have grown in appeal because
of their potential for differentiated risk-return
profiles and diversification benefits. In this
report, SI examines and analyzes the evolving
world of registered alternatives in comparison
to the traditional hedge fund industry,
combining data on the liquid alternative and
hedge fund industries with proprietary surveys
to investors, advisers, and gatekeepers.
