Rock the House.. Big Time

An FT article reveals a few jaw dropping statistics from Merill Lynch research:

  • 28% of fund management industry revenues are accounted for by hedge funds which manage an estimated 3% of the industry's assets.
  • Private equity accounts for 8% of industry revenue with about 1% of assets
Barrons also details some hedge fund statistics from recent Dresdner Kleinwort research:
  • hedge Funds may account for 1% of global AUM but triple to 3% with leverage
  • hedge funds account for 2/3 of margin debt
  • hedge funds account for 25%-60% of trading in major global markets
  • transaction costs and manager & performance fees consume about 8-9% of assets managed annually meaning funds must generate returns of 20%/yr
