Hedge fund professionals are looking for reliable industry benchmarks, not blue sky numbers.

The fifth annual Hedge Fund Compensation Survey is being conducted to uncover the trends and changes in hedge fund pay practices.

The Hedge Fund Compensation Survey is designed to collect data directly from those in the industry and create a reliable and affordable compensation benchmark tool for both individuals evaluating their own compensation package and for firms looking to set compensation policies.

The online survey can be completed quickly and eligible participants who complete the survey receive the final Hedge Fund Compensation Report (a $297 value) free of charge.

"The industry buzz about hedge fund compensation tends to focus on the top paid fund managers, such as Paulson and Soros," says David Kochanek, publisher of the Hedge Fund Compensation Report. "But hedge fund professionals are looking for reliable industry benchmarks, not blue sky numbers."

The survey questions delve into more than just salary levels. The survey asks about work culture, bonuses, fund performance and job satisfaction.

Industry insiders can participate in the survey at and, by doing so, secure access to the Hedge Fund Compensation Report free of charge when results are published.
