Hedge Fund Returns in 2009
Hedge Fund Industry Recovery Led by Strong Returns
For hedge funds, 2009 will be remembered as one of the industry's best ever -- a year when managers delivered strong gains after 2008's drubbing and investors returned to the fray with new money.
But the hangover from 2008, when clients reacted to the industry's worst-ever losses by pulling out a record $155 billion, has not fully disappeared, managers and investors said.
The $2 trillion hedge fund industry is just beginning to tally this year's winnings, but preliminary numbers offer plenty to cheer about.
Performance trackers, including Hennessee Group and Hedge Fund Research, are expected to report 2009 data in early January.
Buoyed by a strong rally across many asset classes, global hedge funds, on average, gained 13.2 percent through Tuesday, according to the HFRX index compiled by Chicago-based research group Hedge Fund Research. Source
