Eurekahedge

October 2013
 

Introduction

Hedge funds were back in the black in September amid rallies in the underlying markets. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 1.18%1 during the month as global markets trended upwards, war in the Middle East was averted and the US Federal Reserve did not announce the speculated tapering of its asset purchase program. The MSCI World Index gained 3.87%2 during the month.

Total assets under management (AUM) increased by US$4.2 billion during the month, bringing the size of the industry to US$1.91 trillion. Most of the positive impact on total assets in September came from performance as managers gained US$3.0 billion over the course of the month. The industry also witnessed net positive asset flows of US$1.2 billion during the month.
