Idea Group launches survey of Hedge Fund community
December 15th 2016
Following on from the recent, Idea Group lead, survey of the UK pension fund community, it was decided that it would also be interesting to suvey the global hedge and alternative fund community as 2016 comes to a close. Given that Idea Group has been working closely with the GAIA group over the last few years, the questions would be focused on the level of satisfaction that these firms have with the services offered by their administration service providers.
As in other areas of financial services, there has been much discussion in recent weeks regarding the level of service and operational automation available, not least due to increasing regulatory focus in this area. We hope to use the survey responses in order to help understand what the current awareness levels are regarding available solutions, where the challenges lie, and to then use this to help our clients improve their offerings.
Idea Group COO, Ian Lyall, stated; We have been working with both sides of the alternative investment community for some time now and it feels that, although much work has been done by the administration service providers, the level of awareness of this amongst their clients is low. We hope to be able to use this survey in order to understand if this is the case, and then to ensure that all parties are engaged in helping to implement these valuable improvements across the industry.
