Hedge funds are back!

Andrew Beer, managing member of Dynamic Beta investments speaks to David Barfoot about how investors have started looking again at hedge fund investments, partly to help them manage risk.

Why should investors consider hedge funds over the long term?

Hedge funds can play an important role as a diversifier in traditional multi-asset portfolios. As hedge funds are less constrained than traditional long-only funds, they can generate different investment outcomes. In fact, since 2000, hedge funds have matched equity market performance with half the risk*.
In addition, hedge funds can provide an element of cushioning or protection from the risks associated with traditional long-only strategies. Hence, a long-term allocation to hedge funds can help enhance risk/returns.

*This level of risk is not guaranteed and may shift over time.

David Barfoot,
Director Distribution UK, Channel Islands & Ireland

Why do you believe hedge funds can be a substitute for fixed income?

After large and sudden drawdowns in both 2020 and 2021, many allocators simply want out of traditional fixed income; meanwhile, with alpha back, hedge funds appear to have much better return potential with comparable or even lower risk*.
The difficult reality today is that fixed income investors face paltry expected returns with potentially big downside risk. Both rates and credit spreads are at or near historical lows. As a practical matter, as both approach the “lower bound” of zero, return expectations drop and risk rises. The risk reward has changed.

*Low risk does not mean risk-free.

The difficult reality today is that fixed income investors face paltry expected returns with potentially big downside risk.

What is hedge fund replication?

Hedge fund replication seeks to identify the core market drivers of performance of hedge fund strategies and invest directly in liquid and transparent instruments (e.g. futures) to deliver comparable results. Replication strategies have several features that are in line with investors’ needs, they:

• Seek to match or outperform a diversified pool of hedge funds

• Work seamlessly within the constraints of UCITS funds and offer daily liquidity and transparency

• Closely match the performance of the targeted pool of hedge funds eliminating underlying manager risk

• Have an efficient fee structure

What distinguishes DBi’s approach from other liquid alternative providers or quant funds?

For well over a decade, DBi has been singularly focused on delivering hedge fund alpha in client-friendly structures. Unlike pure quant firms, DBi’s deep understanding of how hedge funds actually invest has guided which strategies they seek to replicate, and which cannot be replicated, and which methods of replication are most likely to work over time.
