Hedge Fund Monthly
 
July 2011 Asset Flows Update

Eurekahedge

July 2011
 

Global hedge funds were down for the second month running as the Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index declined 1.22%1 in June and was flat to slightly positive for the first half of 2011. Comparatively, the MSCI AC World Index2 was down 1.88% in June and up 1.05% year to date (YTD).

Total assets under management (AuM) were down by US$8.8 billion, although the sector continued to attract capital for the seventh consecutive month. Mid-month trend reversals in June led to losses across the spectrum of different strategies, as managers found it difficult to navigate through unpredictable market conditions. The total assets gained through performance stand at a modest US$20 billion for 1H 2011.

On the other hand, hedge fund asset flows were positive in June, with managers attracting net inflows of US$2.6 billion. Allocation activity has remained high throughout 1H 2011 with the sector attracting US$116.2 billion in the last six months – the strongest half-yearly asset flows on record.
