Despite the tremendous growth of the hedge fund sector in Europe, the world of hedge funds is still shrouded in a veil of mystery. Politicians and regulators have regularly criticized the hedge fund industry for threatening financial stability.

In particular, this article will argue in favor of allocating supervisory responsibility for large systemically important hedge funds to the ECB.
