Abstract [en]

In this dissertation we focus on how hedge funds registered in Sweden are behaving compared to foreign hedge funds. Since the Swedish regulation concerning hedge funds is tough, we believe that this might affect the performance of the Swedish hedge funds, both negative and positive. The purpose then, is to be able to find out what benefits Swedish hedge fund investors the most – investing in Swedish hedge funds, or investing abroad.

We formed hypotheses according to how we thought hedge funds registered in Sweden should perform in comparison with foreign hedge funds, since we believe that the Swedish hedge funds will perform differently due to sterner regulation. Since we test these hypotheses with statistical methods we are using a deductive approach. The data used are mainly of a secondary nature available from hedge fund indexes.

The statistical measures could not support any differences between the Swedish and foreign hedge funds.
