The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is to run a hedge fund research programme aimed at the top end of the market.
The research, to be sponsored by International Asset Management (IAM), will be carried out by Professor Gregory Connor. The programme will last three years, with the findings presented at two free seminars a year over the next three years.
IAM has been managing money in hedge funds since the mid-1980s, originally for wealthy European families but now more for institutions.
The company will provide its database to the LSE and direct the research to ensure it is relevant to the industry. Alan Djanogly, director of International Asset Management, said the aim of the programme is to raise the level of debate in the hedge fund community.
