    BarclayHedge (and probably Bloomberg) is entirely self reported information. Almost all of these databases are. They do zero checking of, well, anything. I know this since I report to them as well.
  6. Thanks for sharing and interesting to know this. You are really putting a legitimacy question on them.
  7. Sholdn't the number be audited in any hedge fund?

    No, not really. Audits must legally be conducted/shared for all partners in a limited partnership.... And legally you can't conduct fraud. But beyond that, anything goes from a legal point of view. Numbers in these databases can be pure fantasy. (And of course, audits are also frequently faked.... People literally take audit reports and white-out numbers before sending them on.)

    Always ask yourself whether the information you're seeing can be legally verified, if they are regulated by US authorities, etc, etc.
