From its origin as a research specialist and performance measurement firm, BarclayHedge has developed complete client services as a publisher, database and software provider, and industry consultant. A critical factor behind BarclayHedge's success - both in its research and consulting roles - has been the BarclayHedge Alternative Investment Database. This computerized database tracks and analyzes the performance of 7156 hedge fund and managed futures investment programs worldwide. Based on our over 25 years of experience in data collection, research and consulting services, we have established long-standing relationships with many of these managers. These relationships have proven themselves to be of great value to our clients.
The BarclayHedge Databases, the BarclayHedge Fund Database and the BarclayHedge Managed Futures (CTA) Database, serve as the basis for research reports and performance rankings that appear in BarclayHedge's various publications and directories. BarclayHedge is one of the foremost sources for proprietary research in the field of alternative investments. Much of the research is summarized in the quarterly BarclayHedge Managed Funds Report.
BarclayHedge has created and regularly updates 18 proprietary hedge fund indices and 10 managed futures indices. The BarclayHedge indices are utilized worldwide by financial media and investment consultants as performance benchmarks for the alternative investment industry.
Maintenance and growth of the BarclayHedge Databases requires continuous performance monitoring, discussion, and review. BarclayHedge's extensive interaction with alternative asset managers around the globe, combined with its proprietary analytical tools, gives the BarclayHedge team a unique perspective and in-depth knowledge of the alternative investment industry and its universe of managers. As a BarclayHedge subscriber, you can utilize that knowledge and perspective to structure investment portfolios that offer global market participation and risk diversification.
