HFR Database, the most comprehensive resource available for hedge fund investors, includes fund-level detail on historical performance and assets, as well as firm characteristics on both the broadest and most influential hedge fund managers.

HFR has developed the industry’s most detailed fund classification system, enabling granular and specific queries for relative performance measurement, peer group analysis and benchmarking. HFR produces over 100 indices of hedge fund performance ranging from industry-aggregate levels down to specific, niche areas of sub-strategy and regional investment focus. With performance dating back to 1990, the HFRI Fund Weighted Composite Index is the industry’s most widely used standard benchmark of hedge fund performance globally.

The HFR suite of Analysis Products leverages the HFR Database to provide detailed, current, comprehensive and relevant aggregate reference points on all facets of the hedge fund industry. HFR also offers consulting services for clients seeking customized top-level or more nuanced analysis.

HFR Database is utilized globally by thousands of accredited investors at leading banks, brokerage firms, investment advisors, wealth managers, funds of hedge funds, hedge funds, academic institutions, foundations, endowments, family offices and sovereign wealth funds.

HFR Database is currently comprised of over 6,800 hedge funds and fund of funds, including many of the industry’s leading hedge fund managers.
