Hedge Funds Post Inflow of $15.7 Billion (0.9% of Assets) in March; Investors Favor Emerging Markets and Fixed Income Funds
New York, NY – May 9, 2011 – The hedge fund industry posted an inflow of $15.7 billion (0.9% of assets) in March 2011, report BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. The inflow marks the third straight as well as the seventh in eight months. Industry assets rose to $1.8 trillion, the highest level since October 2008.
“We expect recent strength to persist in light of a particularly kind landscape,” explains Sol Waksman, founder and President of BarclayHedge. “Seasonality works in favor of the industry through June, high commodity prices leave sovereign wealth funds with a lot of cash to invest, and returns have been strong. The Barclay Hedge Fund Index boasts a positive return in each of the seven months through March.”
