AFI interviewed Patrick Ghali, managing partner of hedge fund advisory firm Sussex Partners; and Ludovica Brignola, a financial journalist based in Istanbul.
Ghali gives his take on hedge fund performance this year, which has drawn negative headlines but provided important diversification for some investors at a time of volatile markets. ESG, Japan and the start-up market also feature in a broad discussion.
Brignola, who has reported on hedge funds in London, the Middle-East and beyond, analyses the debate over Dubai as an emerging hedge fund hub. Why are some funds starting offices there and why might others be hesitant?
