By analyzing data from 1845 funds registered in twenty-four countries, evidence of forum shopping in a “race to the bottom” due to international differences in hedge fund regulation and fund strategies is not found. Instead, where forum shopping exists, the evidence supports the view that hedge funds select jurisdictions where strategies and regulations are aligned to suit investor’s interests.

Keywords:   jurisdiction shopping, race to the bottom, race to the top, choice of law, forum shopping, hedge fund strategies
