April 2011 Asset Flows Update
April 2011

The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 0.15%1 in March, with managers also witnessing strong asset flows of US$13.9 billion from investors. It was, however, a turbulent month for the industry, marked with swings in risk appetite and mid-month trend reversals. Managers did well to navigate through the uncertainty and protect capital. Most market indices ended March in the red – the MSCI World Index2 was down 1.53% in the month.

Total assets under management crossed US$1.75 trillion as investors continued the strong allocation activity from the last quarter of 2010. Updated figures for February show that hedge funds attracted US$23.5 billion during the month and this trend of strong asset flows continued through March when the sector gained another US$13.9 billion.
