Hedge Funds 2010 Inflows Estimate

Hedge Funds Expected to Attract $222 Billion in 2010

A recent survey estimates that hedge funds may attract $222 billion in 2010, which is welcome news after two years spent struggling to bring in investors.  This would be the first annual net inflow since 2007 when the financial crisis began.  Investors seem much more inclined to invest with hedge funds after a year of solid returns.  The projected inflows for this year would push the industry's total assets under management to $1.72 trillion.
Hedge funds globally may attract $222 billion of fresh capital this year, according to a survey by Deutsche Bank AG marking the first annual net inflow since the global financial crisis hit in 2007.

Investors are returning to hedge funds after they posted an average return of 20 percent in 2009, the most since 1999, according to HFR data. Seventy-four percent of investors in the Deutsche Bank survey expect the MSCI World Index to climb this year, while 34 percent of them predict the S&P 500 Index to gain 5 percent to 10 percent, helping hedge funds advance.
The eighth Deutsche Bank alternative investment survey, released today, polled asset managers, corporations, family offices, foundations and endowments, funds of funds, insurers, private banks, pension funds and investment consultants with more than $1.07 trillion of hedge fund assets in January.  Source
