2. Live funds are those that are presumed to be actively trading.
3. We consider long only absolute returns funds as a subset of long short equity with a long bias. They have an identical business structure to a long short funds but tend to charge slightly lower fees.
4. Please note we are referring to funds and not management companies. There are many more management companies that run more than US$1bn in alternative assets that do not have a single billion dollar fund.
