Hedge Fund Liquidations and Startups
More Hedge Fund Start-Ups Than Liquidations
The revival of hedge funds comes as investors appear more confident about putting their cash in the alternative asset space.

But the number of new hedge fund start-ups this year remains well below the average annual pace of 1,400 seen from 2002 to 2007. Despite the drop in liquidations for in third quarter, fund liquidations for 2009 have already made the current calendar year the second highest on record for fund closures. So far, 858 hedge funds have shut down, exceeding the 2005 total of 848 funds.
A record 1,471 hedge funds were liquidated in 2008 as a result of the financial crisis. Source
