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, which will be carried out by professor Gregory Connor, will be presented at two free conferences a year over the next three years.
International Asset Management is sponsoring the programme.
The company has been managing money in hedge funds since the mid 1980s, originally for wealthy families across Europe and now increasingly for institutions.
The company will make its database accessible to the LSE and direct the research to ensure it is relevant to the industry.
According to Alan Djanogly, director of International Asset Management, the aim of the programme is to raise the level of debate in the hedge fund community. The programme is aimed at investors and managers who already have a good knowledge of the industry.
