BNY Mellon's Samir Pandiri, Chief Executive Officer of Asset Servicing, and Jim Whitaker, Managing Director, Alternative Investment Services, discuss how today's institutional investors are reconsidering their asset-allocation strategies, while striving to balance liquidity with returns and emphasizing risk management.
These continue to be challenging times for hedge fund managers. Regulatory scrutiny is up, public understanding remains low, and even institutional uncertainty about the global economy has negatively impacted the industry. The hedge fund manager must now tread ever more carefully between the concentric boundaries of risk aversion and risk acceptance to achieve goals consistent with a particular fund's stated purpose, pedigree, and assets.
