Christopher Hilditch, Schulte Roth & Zabel

At the beginning of 2020, many alternative (or private) fund managers might have been cautiously optimistic.

Private equity funds also showed double digit returns over one-year, three-year, five-year and ten-year time horizons. Of course, some strategies performed better than others — macro and long equity amongst hedge fund strategies and buyout among private equity strategies.
