Hedge Fund Assets Reach 2008 Pre-Crisis Level

Hedge fund total assets have reportedly reached September 2008 level, and then some. According to Eurekahedge, hedge fund assets are not only back at a pre-crisis level but also on pace for a record year in terms of industry assets.
Hedge-fund assets appear to have not only returned to the level they were at in September 2008 at the height of the financial crisis, but they also are on pace to top out at a record level by year's end.

Two reports that came out this week show an industry on the rise after hedge funds suffered a major setback in the aftermath of the financial crisis, with managers struggling with redemptions and a hefty decline in the value of investments.

The figures come as ramped-up regulatory oversight and the pressure of managing money for fickle investors are driving some hedge-fund managers to pull out of the industry. The data also come as the insider-trading trial of Galleon Group hedge-fund Founder Raj Rajaratnam, which could undermine confidence in the industry, gets under way.
