The Hedge Fund Standards Board (HFSB) is a standard setting body for the hedge fund industry and a custodian of the Hedge Fund Standards which provide a powerful mechanism for creating a framework of transparency, integrity and good governance that maintain a high reputation for the industry, facilitate investor due diligence and complement public policy, thus serving the interests of all market participants and of the economy at large.
The HFSB brings together managers, investors, regulators and consultants from around the world to help determine how the hedge fund industry should operate. Over 119 Hedge Fund Managers so far have committed to the Standards accounting for over USD 600bn in AUM. Around 60 major international investors, including pension and endowment funds, sovereign wealth funds and funds of funds, have embraced the HFSB as members of the Investor Chapter to drive adoption of the Standards.
