Private Fund Statistics for Q2 2017
Since October 2015 the SECs Division of Investment Management Analytics Office has published quarterly data and statistics related to private funds as reported on Form ADV and Form PF by SEC-registered investment advisers. In this installment of Compliance Corner, ICSGroup highlights some of the relevant statistics for private funds and hedge funds. The statistics are consistent with the SECs objective of providing the public with more transparency into the private fund industry. The types of private funds included in the report include private equity funds, hedge funds, real estate funds, securitized asset funds, liquidity funds, venture funds and other private funds. The data tracks the number of funds, the number of advisors advising each type of private fund, gross and net assets, the number of funds with parallel managed accounts, among other statistics more relevant to large hedge funds.
