January 2010 Asset Flows Update


February 2010

After growing consistently for six months, hedge fund assets under management declined by US$2.85 billion in January 2010 as global markets went through some mid-month volatility. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was down by 0.86%1; however, this can be considered as an outperformance as most market indices registered declines ranging from 3% to 9%. The MSCI World Index was down 4.2% amid concerns over the global economy and health of the financial sector.

The decrease in assets under management came mainly from performance-based losses while asset flows remained flat to slightly positive for the month across the industry.
