Hedge fund assets decline by $20bn in June - Eurekahedge

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York:

The June sell-off not only impacted hedge fund returns, it also resulted in a decline in assets. According to a new report from Eurekahedge, total assets under management were down by $20.94bn during June – the sector witnessed net negative asset flows of $2.12bn while losing $18.82bn through performance based losses. The total size of the industry now stands at $1.89tn. Before the sell-off hedge funds had a seven month streak of inflows from November 2012. June represented one of the largest performance losses in a single month this year, for the hedge fund industry.

The benchmark Eurekahedge Hedge Fund index declined 0.69% in June while the MSCI World Index was down 3.10% over the month, as risk off trades defined June on Federal Reserve comments that a wind down of the asset purchasing program may start as early as the end of the year. The index is still positive at +2.47% YTD. A clarification of the Federal Reserve position on asset purchases came earlier this month, leading to a slight rebound in US equities. The report shows that asset flows are also expected to rebound by the end of the month raising industry AUM to $1.3tn.
