Japan Hedge Funds Lead January Returns

Japan hedge fund managers have led the industry in the first month of 2011.  Hedge funds around the globe gained 0.06% while Japan hedge funds returned 1.26%.  It was a month of mixed returns for the industry but hedge funds continued a seven-month long streak of positive returns. 
Hedge funds globally rose 0.06 percent, while Japan-focussed funds gained 1.26 percent, making it the best performing hedge fund region in the world, comprehensively outperforming the 0.1 percent gain of the benchmark Nikkei 225 Index .N225 in January.
Asset flows into the industry were positive for a seventh consecutive month, with investors allocating a net $3.39 billion, helping the industry grow to $1.68 trillion.
"Although January is usually a slow month for asset flows, the excellent returns posted by hedge funds in the last quarter of 2010 and improving macro-economic fundamentals have led to strong interest among investors to allocate to hedge funds," the firm said in a statement.  Source
