Eurekahedge

Asset Flows Update for the Month of September 2014
Eurekahedge
Hedge funds ended September flat with the Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index returning 0.00%, outperforming underlying markets as the MSCI World Index slipped 1.86%, with market volatility picking up after the seasonal summer doldrums. In the US, investors are gearing up in earnest at the prospect of tighter monetary policy in the United States as the economic recovery continues to gain strength, with concerns continuing to remain regarding the pace of a rate rise given the mammoth challenge of unwinding the Fed’s balance sheet.
Hedge Fund Performance Commentary for the Month of September 2014

Eurekahedge

Hedge funds were marginally negative in September, closing the month down 0.05, outperforming underlying markets as the MSCI World Index fell 1.86% on concerns over the pacing of rate hikes in the US. The protests in Hong Kong towards the end of the month also weighed in on investor sentiment, adding further selling pressure to equity markets which were already jittery at the prospect of rising rates. September saw a sharp rise in investor risk aversion, resulting in a corresponding flight to safe assets while the CBOE VIX Index rose to 16.31 during the month.

Louis Meng, James Zhang and Miles Pan, Haynes and Boone LLP

It's All There: Post-AIFMD Fundraising Options in Germany

Stephen Culhane, Simon Firth, Dr. Thomas A. Jesch, LLM, Daniel Lewin and Hartmut T. Renz, Kaye Scholer LLP

There is significant potential for alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs) to access Germany’s large base of institutional investors. Despite the recent post-AIFMD challenges — including the abolition of Germany’s pre-AIFMD private placement regime (NPPR) and BaFin’s (the German supervisory authority) restrictive interpretation of reverse solicitation practices — Germany is far from the ‘impenetrable’ jurisdiction for marketing purposes under AIFMD or the KAGB (Kapitalanlagegesetzbuch, the 2013 German implementing legislation) that many clients assume.

The New Deal: Hedge Fund Management Fees Are Subject to Social Security Taxes

Mark Leeds, Mayer Brown

It’s probably fair to speculate that there were significant numbers of tax aficionados (including the author of this article) among the audience for Ken Burns’ recent public television extravaganza on the Roosevelt dynasty. Unfortunately for this segment of the audience, the intersection of tax and FDR was not highlighted, with the passage of the Social Security Act receiving only scant mention. Social security taxes have risen dramatically since the enactment of the law.
