Hedge Fund Trend
Hedge Fund Industry & The Markets
I just had a comment on a past blog post related to how the current markets have changed the current hedge fund strategies being offered right now.
Here was my response:
While many strategies have struggled in 2008 and 2009 global macro and shorting strategies have done well. I've also heard of many managers who are shifting their strategies to more short term vol trading instead of long term holding for obvious reasons. Managers who used to do 80% long term holding and 20% short term trading have now flipped those stats on their head. Lots of new commercial financing and distressed asset funds are coming out right now as well.
