Asset Flows Update

The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index declined 0.30% in September, trailing the global equity market which edged 2.04% higher over the month, as represented by the MSCI ACWI (Local). Global equities rallied through the earlier half of the month, supported by the resumption of the US-China trade talks, only to retreat toward the end of the month as an impeachment inquiry was launched against the US President. The bond market saw yields decline as major central banks continued with their easing policies: the Fed cut its rate for the second time this year in September, and the ECB announced new stimulus packages, including the restart of their asset purchases. Returns were mostly positive across regions, with the exception of fund managers focusing on Europe, who were down 0.10% in September. Nonetheless, the mandate is still up 3.75% on a year-to-date basis. Japan-focused hedge funds were up 1.26% throughout the month, outperforming their Asia ex-Japan peers who were up 0.97%.
