| 19/02/2015 | 0 Comments

(CNS Business): the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority has published its latest digest but the compendium of financial information is now more than a year old. While the regulator publishes much more up to date data on its site, the annual digest, which pulls together investment information, is usually one year behind. The data comes from over 8,700 funds which were regulated by CIMA in 2013.

The Statistical Trend Analysis Section compares the data with 2012 and says that the net asset value of regulated funds increased by 8% to US$2.127 trillion.

It points to 11,379 regulated funds at 2013 year end and some 2,635 Master Funds, compared to 1,891 in 2012. With 8,744 Registered, Administered and Licensed Funds, compared to 8,950 in 2012 net income in 2013 was still higher at US$186 billion, compared to US$138 billion in 2012. Net income for Master Funds also increased to US$158 billion from US$88 billion in 2012.

The digest also states that 37% of all funds that filed the FAR in 2013 had total assets of more than US100 million.

Multi-strategy continued as most popular investment strategy during 2013 and fixed income replaced long/short equity as the second most popular strategy. New York and the United Kingdom continued as the top two investment manager locations.
