If a thread similar to this already exits, I'm sorry, this shitty phone I'm using won't let me search through the forums.
I was hoping to find out how the Hedge Fund industry as a whole as changed over the last few decades, in terms of the actual types of funds that exist. I know there is a huge variety ofstrategies, from short selling, events, macro, etc, and these all deal in different products and asset classes, but what are the relative proportions of each type, and how is this changing with the recent crises. Surely certain funds are finding things more difficult now than ten years ago, and others are favoured.
If this is a stupid question, or there is not really ever a changing trend of fund types, my bad.
