Geographical implications and trends
A look at where new money injected into the industry has originated from since 2008.

New money allocated to hedge funds post-2008 has come primarily from the Middle East (77% reported increased allocations from this region), reflecting increased allocations from sovereign wealth funds from that region. In addition, new inflows into the hedge fund industry are originating from the Asia-Pacific region (69% reported increased allocations from this region) and North America (68% of respondents reported an increase in allocations from this region).


Hedge fund investment originating in the European Union has remained relatively flat (53% of respondents saw investments rise and 47% saw them decline from this region) since 2008, while Swiss investment has declined (44% of respondents saw investments increase while 56% saw them decrease from this region).
