60% of pension funds disappointed with fund of hedge fund fees
bfinance
9 Jan 2009 United Kingdom Investment - Hedge Funds, Administration
A bfinance survey covering a diverse group of pension funds shows that 70% of respondents feel they are getting good value for money from their passive equity and fixed income managers. However, a majority of respondents (60%) are disappointed with the fees they pay for actively-managed fund of hedge funds (FoHFs). In the wake of the credit crunch and dramatically changing capital markets landscape, participating pension schemes were asked to rate whether they get good, fair or poor value for their money across 14 asset classes. Not one said they get good value from FoHFs and only 40% say they get fair value.
