Forward hedge fund redemptions continue to be low on a historic basis says GlobeOp

Friday, October 21, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update – The GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator for October 2011 measured 2.51%, down from 3.11% in September.

“Forward hedge fund redemptions continue to be low on a historic basis,” said Hans Hufschmid, chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial Services. “Although small, this month records the first year-on-year increase since 2009. Reflecting seasonality, November and December indicate substantially lower redemptions than October, the first month of the quarter. We will gain more insight next month as investors prepare for their year-end portfolio allocations.”

The Indicator represents the sum of forward redemption notices received from investors in hedge funds administered by GlobeOp, divided by the AuA at the beginning of the month for GlobeOp fund administration clients. Forward redemptions as a percentage of GlobeOp assets under administration have trended significantly lower since reaching a high of 19.27% in November 2008. The next publication date is November 21, 2011.

Published on the 15th business day of the month, the GlobeOp Forward Redemption Indicator presents a timely and accurate view of the redemption pipeline for investors in hedge funds on the GlobeOp administration platform. Movements in the Indicator reflect investor confidence in their allocations to hedge funds. Indicator data is based on actual investor redemption notifications received. Unlike subscriptions, redemption notifications are typically received 30-90 days in advance of the redemption date. Investors may, and sometimes do, cancel redemption notices. In addition, the establishment and enforcement of redemption notices may vary from fund to fund.
