Despite turbulent performance in recent years, the fund of hedge funds industry has seen robust growth over the past decade. The sector grew at an incremental pace during the 2002 to mid-2008 period, increasing the size of the industry from less than US$100 billion to US$826.2 billion by March 2008. This growth in assets was accompanied by a simultaneous increase in the fund population with the total number of funds of hedge funds increasing from below 1500 to over 3500 by 2007.
While the sector was hit hard in the financial crisis, and is some way off its highs of 2007 and 2008, there have been positive signs of multi-managers recovering assets through performance in the last couple of years.
Further, it was positively noted in 2011 that there was a minute difference between the performance of multi-manager funds and single manager funds and funds of hedge funds, on average, suffer from less volatility.
