Hedge Funds October 2009
6th Straight Month of Inflows, Performance Falls in October
Despite the 0.4% drop in Hedgefund.net's key industry reading, it said funds on average remain on pace to return nearly 20% this year, which would be their best showing since 2003.
October saw investors most active in equity-related strategies, pushing inflows up 1.6%. Merger arbitrage led primary strategies, increasing 2.8%.
On a performance basis, the emerging market index was among the gainers last month with a 2% advance, putting the year's gains at 39%. Funds investing in Russia led the way in October, followed by China and Brazil.
Hedge funds have been rebounding from their worst-ever year in 2008. Funds on average lost about 20% last year, though that was far less than the decline for major stock averages. Source
