Can I get decent hedge fund data via Eikon?

Hello everyone,

I am using the Fund Screener app to get the hedge funds meeting certain criteria. However, it seems that there are not all funds listed because the research that I am aware of mentions the bigger numbers. Also, in Liquidated funds category, there are very few that contain NAV history. (e.g. out of ~1100 Equity\Long\Short funds that have nonempty investment objective only 75 have NAV history).

I am wondering if there are any restrictions on these data and can I adequately access it through Eikon api? After the instances like in the examle above I am starting to be discouraged about that (

Thanks for any help!

@dgrishin all questions can be addressed to your local Refinitiv support desk or your dedicated specialist. They can help you build out a model in Eikon Excel that can then be replicated with the use of Eikon API.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for the answer! But the question was more about whether it is possible in principle. More presicely, does Eikon provide the unrestricted access to Lipper hedge fund data for all funds (at least NAV and TNA) or the unrestricted access comes only with the other TR products (and not Eikon)?

after spending some time, I more or less understood how to query the information from Eikon if it is there, but I would like to know if it is there at all :) How can I clarify this? (i am using Eikon from my university)

This forum is aimed at software developers using Eikon APIs. The moderators on this forum do not have deep expertise in all the content sets available through Eikon that is required to answer your question. I advise you to call Refinitiv Helpdesk number in your country. The Helpdesk will either have the answer for you right away, or will reach out to the content experts for funds who can provide the answer you're looking for.

Thank you for the helpful response. I will try to do that.
And sorry for the wrong question.
