MJ Hudson Allenbridge provides Operational Quality (“OQ”) ratings of hedge funds as an objective third party assessment that can be used as a diagnostic tool for areas of operational strength and weakness, as well as to improve investor transparency and provide competitive differentiation between managers, which is a critical component in the acquisition and retention of capital.
THE OQ RATING ASSESSMENT FRAMEWORK
The hedge fund OQ assessment expresses an opinion on the quality of a fund’s operations in the context of its stated objectives and investment strategy.
Other considerations beyond the key rating elements include corporate governance and management quality. Additionally the rating assessments do not opine on market risk decisions, the manager’s risk appetite or the investment strategy, all of which are certainly key considerations for investors. However, these factors do provide context for a hedge fund’s operational infrastructure and will thus be considered when evaluating the risk management framework and overall operational quality.
