  • 2007 will see a significant increase in consultant search activity
  • Overall rising interest in alternative searches
  • More consultants will focus on Hedge Funds than on any other strategy
  • … but traditional Equity searches will still generate most search activity
  • Consultants will prefer Fund of Funds over direct Hedge Fund investing
  • Core and Core Plus Fixed Income managers face a barren search year
  • Private Equity and Real Estate searches abound in 2007
  • Expected increase in defined contribution-related searches
  • Demand for 130/30 products will be selective
  • Prospects are weak for Liability Driven Investments
  • Consultants are indifferent over style
