Bringing managers and investors together to set standards for the alternative investment industry

Hedge Fund Standards

The Hedge Fund Standards address key issues relating to hedge fund practices, covering the areas of:

  • Disclosure
  • Valuation
  • Risk Management
  • Fund Governance
  • Shareholders Conduct

Managers achieve conformity with the Standards on a “comply-or-explain” basis and make their disclosure statements available to existing and prospective investors upon request.

In line with its mandate to keep the Standards relevant, the HFSB responds to changes in industry practices and investor expectations by consulting publicly on improvements to the Standards.

A summary of the Standards is available here.
