Podcast – Emerging Opportunities Within the Hedge Fund Space

In a recent installment of The Wealth Enterprise Briefing, we discuss the fundamentals of hedge funds and the role this private asset class can play in portfolios. Continuing our special hedge fund series, WE Family Offices’ Managing Partner Michael Zeuner and Senior Investment Manager Matt Farrell, CAIA, explore how rate hike policies of worldwide central banks, as well as the current macroeconomic landscape, have influenced the hedge fund realm.

Some of the specific topics addressed during this episode include:

  • The evolution of the interest rate environment over the last decade and its effect on hedge funds.
  • How the post-pandemic world has generated fresh opportunities within the hedge fund arena.
  • Hedge fund classifications that have significantly enhanced portfolio value in the last 18 months, potentially achieving this accomplishment for the first time.

Central banks increasing interest rates at an unprecedented pace and markets grappling with persistent volatility over the past 18 months have led to a prolonged, significant shift in hedge funds. However, when changes occur, new opportunities emerge of which family offices should be aware. If you have any questions about emerging hedge fund prospects, please do not hesitate to contact us.
