Fund raising for hedge funds faces substantial incremental hurdles as compared to 15 years ago, albeit less so than for private equity funds. The bar is even higher for those managers that are regarded as emerging. The process of fund raising for hedge funds has become far more complex, albeit somewhat less involved than for private equity funds. Gone are the days of several meetings consisting of a PowerPoint presentation with verbal discussions of strategy, investment process and a few case studies leading to a commitment. Managers must be prepared for detailed discussions regarding portfolio construction principles, process, sourcing, technical/formulaic systems, ability to weather adverse markets, differentiation and performance dissection.
