Hedge Funds Pull in $6.1 Billion in August, Seventh Inflow in Eight Months. Fixed Income Hedge Funds Boast Best Returns and Heaviest Inflows
New York, NY – October 10, 2011 – Hedge funds pulled in $6.1 billion in August, the seventh inflow in eight months, report BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. Hedge funds hauled in a heavy $51.0 billion in the first eight months of 2011.
“Recent inflows might owe in part to excellent relative performance,” says Sol Waksman, founder and President of BarclayHedge. “While the S&P 500 plunged 10.6% in the four months ended August, the Barclay Hedge Fund Index decreased only 5.6%. Additionally, our preliminary data for September reveals that hedge funds outperformed the S&P 500 by more than a 2:1 margin again last month.”
