Bailey McCann, Opalesque New York:

New hedge fund monitor data from Citi Prime Finance shows that overall, hedge funds ended the month of June and the first half of the year positively. Composite hedge fund performance, equal-weighted across funds, ranged from +0.93% to +1.73%. June-14 performance exceeded May-14 returns of +0.45% to +1.18% over the same period.

Hedge fund strategy wise, top performing strategies in June 2014 include Event Driven at +1.96%, Emerging Markets +1.29%, Global Macro at +1.24% and Equity Long/Short at +1.1%. The lowest performing strategies include Dedicated Short at -2.37 %, Multi Strategy -0.19%, and Convertible Arbitrage -0.16%.

Hedge fund industry assets rose in June 2014 realizing an increase of +$32.7 billion for the month. June gains were attributed to both net new investor flows and performance. Total industry gains in June were on par with the average monthly gain of $30.7 billion for 2014.

Net positive investor flows of +$6.1 billion for June 2014 marks the sixth consecutive month of net positive investors flows this year. June flows were lower than the average investor flows reported throughout 2014 which now stand at +$16.8 billion. YTD investor flows total +$101 billion.
