On October 16, 2015, the SEC staff published its first Private Funds Statistics Report, reflecting anonymized and aggregated data reported on Form PF. It covers the data collected from the first calendar quarter of 2013 through the fourth calendar quarter of 2014. The report includes statistics about the distribution of borrowings, an analysis of hedge fund gross notional exposure to net asset value, and a comparison of average hedge fund investor and hedge fund portfolio liquidity.
This report provides an interesting look into the private fund industry, which before Form PF was largely the subject of guesswork and conjecture. Click here to read this report.
