Stephen Jacobs was quoted in Hedge Fund Alert’s annual market outlook survey.

In it, a majority of the 27 respondents pre­dicted the number of long/short equity funds would decrease in the next five years. Stephen said, “Under the assumption that the U.S. capital mar­kets will experience a correction in the next several months, the expectation would be that the universe of long/short equity funds will compress, perhaps by as much as 15-20%, as inves­tors move to private equity, real estate, credit funds, global macro and other strategies.”

Stephen also predicted that less than 5% of large managers will deploy capital to digital currency investing, calling it "a still very risky, volatile and unproven market."
