Hedge Funds Take in $3.6 Billion in November, Reversing Surge of Redemptions in Previous Months
New York, NY – January 3, 2012 – BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research reported today that hedge funds took in an estimated $3.6 billion in November, a welcome reversal after redemptions surged to $9 billion in October and hit $2.59 billion in September. Industry assets increased to $1.71 trillion in November from $1.67 trillion in October, the first increase after five months of declines. The BarclayHedge Fund Index dipped 0.8% in November after increasing 3.5% in October. That reversal followed five consecutive monthly declines. Despite the increase, hedge fund industry assets stand close to their lowest level since January 2010.
“After months of outflows across nearly every hedge fund category, November saw outflows in only two investment styles: Emerging Markets, which shed $1.3 billion, and Equity Long-Short, which shed $1.0 billion,” says Sol Waksman, founder and President of BarclayHedge.Read the entire TrimTabs Asset Flows into Hedge Funds Press Release by clicking here.
