After six years of subpar returns, hedge fund investors have noticed that things aren’t quite what they’d like them to be. But they’re not doing much to let hedge fund managers know that they’ve noticed.

A survey from Deutsche Bank ’s Global Prime Finance unit, published on Tuesday, showed two-thirds of responding investors said hedge funds they invested in didn’t produce the returns they had been targeting last year….

The survey said 39% of investors plan to increase allocations to hedge funds this year, including 22% who expect to increase the size of their allocations by $100 million or more.
