October 2011 Asset Flows Update

Eurekahedge

October 2011
 

Hedge funds were down 2.69%1 in September; another month of highly volatile movements and broad declines across global markets. The MSCI World Index lost nearly 10% making September the fifth consecutive month of declines for the index. In this market environment, hedge funds were able to outperform the markets substantially. Even so, downbeat investor sentiment resulted in net negative asset flows.

The total size of the industry declined by US$37 billion, bringing total assets under management (AuM) below the US$1.8 trillion mark. Performance-based losses for the month stood at US$16.5 billion, while the sector witnessed net negative asset flows of US$21 billion. As risk appetite declined over the last few months, investors started to pile up redemption requests amid fears of a double-dip recession and previous experience of gated redemptions in 2008 to 2009. The current size of the industry now stands at US$1.76 trillion.
