Call it trickle-down economics. As the hedge fund industry continues to grow, its distribution channels are shifting, and its aim is getting lower when it comes to the net worth of investors, according to a report from Tiburon Strategic Advisors.

Tiburon estimates that the $1.9 trillion industry will grow to $3 trillion by the end of the decade. While some of that growth will come from the increased interest of endowments, pensions and other institutional investors, much of it will come from high-net-worth-as opposed to ultra-high-net-worth-investors, with as little as between $600,000 and $1 million to invest.
