Change management expertise 'required in hedge fund industry'
Changes to the regulation and management of hedge funds are creating new opportunities for managers with specialist skills.
This is according to the website Financial News, which notes that demand for change management executives has grown steadily among hedge funds and private equity organisations since the financial crisis.
In addition, many funds are becoming more confident about their executive recruitment strategies due to the steady inflow of assets under management as the economic recovery continues.
Hedge funds currently face major changes in Europe, with discussions over the EU's controversial Alternative Investment Fund Managers directive dominating the sector in recent months.
Designed to crack down on speculation and risk-taking by placing funds under a super regulator for the first time, the directive has been heavily criticised by industry figures who fear it will drive operators out of Britain and into offshore locations.
About 80 per cent of Europe's hedge funds and private equity operators are currently based in the UK.
