Middle East-focused investment researcher Capintro Partners has released the findings of its latest survey, the Middle East Hedge Fund Investor Survey for 2010. Capintro surveyed 66 investors from Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and Jordan using questions that were “adapted to reflect the environment investors are in and the experiences they have had with their respective fund managers.” According to Capintro’s press release, the firm concluded that overall, investors “expect to increase or maintain their existing allocations to hedge funds in 2010 in comparison to an expected decrease in 2009.”

Capintro also concludes that, in comparison with the results from the firm’s 2009 survey, surveyed investors are looking for improved liquidity. These respondents also favored strategies like Global Macro, Equity Long/Short, and Distressed Debt and anticipate outperformance in 2010 from Emerging Markets, Asia (with the exception of Japan) and the United States.

Capintro Partners aims to “bridge a gap between global investment managers and institutional and high net worth clients” in the Middle East and Northern Africa. The firm focuses on global alternative investment managers and also conducts “placement services of actively managed funds and direct investments in the alternative investment industry including hedge funds.” Capintro is based in the United Kingdom and has a representative office in Dubai.
