Asset Flows Update For the Month of August 2013

Eurekahedge

September 2013
 

Hedge funds posted slightly negative returns in August, amid increasing risk aversion in the markets. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was down 0.23%1 during the month as global markets reverted to ‘risk-off’ mode amid fears of another war in the Middle East and speculation that the US Federal Reserve will slow down its asset purchase program. The MSCI World Index was down by 2.26 %2 during the month.

Total assets under management (AUM) declined by US$6.3 billion during the month, bringing the size of the industry to US$1.90 trillion. Most of the negative impact on total assets came from negative performance in August as managers lost US$4.7 billion over the course of the month. The industry also witnessed net negative asset flows of US$1.62 billion during the month.
