Hedge Funds Pull in $3.8 Billion in June, Sixth Straight Inflow, and Rake in $73.0 Billion in First Half of 2011
New York, NY – August 8, 2011 – The hedge fund industry took in $3.8 billion (0.2% of assets) in June, the sixth straight inflow as well as the eleventh in 12 months, report BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. Industry assets decreased to $1.806 trillion from $1.822 trillion in May because performance was poor. The Barclay Hedge Fund Index decreased 1.0% in June.
“Investors were very kind to hedge funds in the first half of the year,” says Sol Waksman, founder and President of BarclayHedge. “The industry raked in $73.0 billion (4.0% of assets), which goes down as the heaviest first-half inflow since 2007. But we wonder if strong inflows will persist through the remainder of the year in light of the recent bloodbath in equities.”
