For Hedge Fund Investors

As a hedge fund investor, you know that identifying quality funds and, more importantly, fund managers with the highest integrity is a difficult endeavor.

Although Hedge Fund Marketing Alliance does not provide investment advice, this site does describe some resources that you may find helpful in your due diligence effort. Keep in mind that many of these sites require investors to be accredited in order to access full information about funds.

Here is a list of helpful resources:

Databases

Standard and Poor’s – The Hedge Fund Evaluator incorporates Standard & Poor’s securitization criteria for modeling performance, and allows users to more quickly and easily develop their own securitization scenarios. Uses a Monte Carlo simulation to forecast the performance of a hedge fund portfolio by identifying a public index with a high correlation to the portfolio under analysis, and projects potential performance.

SkyRank Database – automates analysis of hedge funds in a single functional computation.  It analyzes the hedge fund industry to reward hedge funds that are established, credible and consistent performers, demonstrated by their ability to exploit market inefficiencies.

EuroHedge Database – an extensive database of European single-manager hedge funds. Contact details of funds are listed, many of which include full performance data. You can create your own ‘watch list’ of funds in a bespoke portfolio, by adding individual funds or entire lists.  Data is download-able.
