Hedge Fund Monthly
Asset Flows Update for the Month of November 2013


December 2013


Hedge fund returns were up for the third consecutive month as markets remained upbeat following encouraging job creation data from the US, with Janet Yellen’s dovish sentiments regarding the short-term continuation of the Fed’s QE program giving a further leg up to investor sentiment. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 1.31%1 during the month, bringing its year-to-date (YTD) return to 7.34%. The MSCI World Index gained 1.27%2 during the month.

The industry witnessed strong growth in assets under management (AUM) during the months of September and October, with total assets rising sharply on the back of strong performance-based gains and net inflows from investors –  registering a cumulative increase in AUM of US$81.2 billion. November saw some interesting results, although managers delivered their third consecutive month of performance-based gains (US$2.51 billion), net inflows were in the red with the industry shedding US$3.96 billion during the month. The total AUM of the industry currently stands at US$1.99 trillion – the highest level on record and set to breach the US$2 trillion mark by the end of 2013.
