Putting the JOBS Act to Work
Peppercomm recently conducted a study looking at the evolution of hedge fund communications since the enactment of the Jumpstart Our Businesses (JOBS) Act. The 2014 study, “The JOBS Act at One Year: A Changing Hedge Fund Communications Landscape,” found hedge funds using new methods to enhance their relationships with investors, intermediaries and the media. These tools include building or expanding their websites, launching social media accounts and actively engaging traditional media.
Highlights from the study include:
- 66% of 2014’s largest 292 hedge funds are on LinkedIn, and 10% are on Twitter.
- Monthly hedge fund mentions on Twitter reached a high of 80,000 Tweets in April 2013, and have not fallen below 40,000 in the last two years.
- Among the largest 285 global hedge funds in 2013, 14% launched websites in 2014.
- Among the 185 global hedge funds with $1 billion–$5 billion in assets, 23% had websites in 2013. By June of 2014, an additional 39 funds launched websites and 11 more moved from a closed site to a more open site.
