Abstract: Since the 2008 crisis, the search for alpha has become difficult for active managers, and in particular for hedge funds. Nonetheless, investors can find funds of hedge funds (FoHF) with positive alpha or alternative beta contributions. The team at the Zurich University has developed a data platform for FoHF and, using a multi-factor model, has extracted their alpha and beta characteristics. This article explains the methodology and discusses the results, which show that few FoHF offer pure alpha or pure beta contributions. Most are, at the same time, alpha hunters and beta grazers.
