Video: Hedge Funds Expect Liquid Alts to Take Market Share

Liquid alts are a “potential disruptor” to the hedge fund industry, according to George Sullivan, Executive Vice President and Global Head of State Street’s Alternative Investment Solutions. But in this video, Mr. Sullivan says hedge funds are responding to the challenge with a “spirit of innovation.”

The State Street 2014 Hedge Fund survey asked 235 hedge fund executives to make a set of five-year predictions for the industry regarding business strategies, expected flows, operations, and regulation. Participants were also asked about liquid alts, and their opinions were divided: Half of hedge funds predict alternative mutual funds will seize share from traditional hedge fund strategies over the next half-decade, while 35% disagree.
