Struggling? Time to strengthen the board

Many hedge funds are struggling and 2019 could well be even worse. For managers committed to being around for the long term strengthening their boards at this time of uncertainty is a great way to reassure investors.

Hedge fund numbers do not look good at the end of this year. Citadel, Millennium Management, Greenlight Capital, Point72 and a host of other well-known hedge fund managers have suffered significant loses in 2018.

November, in particular, was a terrible month – both for performance and for hedge fund closures. Closures this autumn have included the following: Brenham Capital, Brenner West Capital Partners, Tourbillon Capital Partners, Highfields Capital Management and Criterion Capital Management.
