The value of assets invested in alternative UCITS funds has increased by 26 per cent annually since the financial crisis of 2008, according to Deutsche Bank Global Prime Finance’s 2016 Alternative UCITS Survey.

In this year’s survey, 130 institutional investors which collectively manage and/or advise on over USD700 billion in hedge fund assets and USD150 billion in alternative UCITS assets, share insights into their current allocation plans and investment preferences for alternative UCITS funds.
 
“Total assets managed by alternative UCITS funds have grown by 26 per cent annually since the 2008 global financial crisis to reach close to EUR400 billion,” says Anita Nemes (pictured), head of the hedge fund capital group and hedge fund consulting at Deutsche Bank. “Our survey results suggest that growth is set to continue, with two thirds of alternative UCITS respondents expecting to increase their allocations this year. We are also seeing a growing number of hedge fund clients embrace UCITS as a growth strategy for their businesses, leading to an increase in new interesting fund launches.”
 
Nearly 70 per cent of all investors surveyed allocate to alternative UCITS funds and a further 5 per cent are planning to make their first investment this year. Two thirds of alternative UCITS investors meanwhile, plan to increase their allocation to such products in 2016, while 58 per cent of responding alternative UCITS investors report that demand has come primarily from underlying institutional clients. 

 
Systematic equity market neutral and fundamental equity market neutral are the most sought after strategies by alternative UCITS investors, while the US/Canada is the most sought after investment region.
