Half Of Hedge Fund Employees Pretty Sure Their Competitors Are Up To No Good

They’re also pretty sure a fair amount of their colleagues have an elastic view of securities laws.

Almost half of hedge-fund professionals believe their competitors are engaged in illegal activity and more than a third say they have felt pressure to break rules at work, according to an online survey released Tuesday. Meanwhile, 30% of respondents said they had witnessed misconduct on the job. The survey, conducted by the polling organization ORC International, reflects the views of 127 hedge-fund industry professionals over the age of 18.
