TrimTabs and BarclayHedge report hedge fund investors redeem $8.6bn in June

Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research reported today that hedge fund flows went negative for the first time this year in June, according to estimates based on data from 3,369 funds. Hedge fund investors redeemed a net $8.6 billion (0.4% of assets) in June 2013, the largest outflow since October 2012 ($10.3 billion outflow) and a sharp turnaround from an $18.8 billion inflow in May.

“Despite the June setback, year-to-date flows to the hedge fund industry stayed positive at $27.1 billion,” said Sol Waksman, president and founder of BarclayHedge. “In the first five months of this year, the industry took in $35.7 billion, compared with just $484 million in the same period last year.”

The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Hedge Fund Flow Report noted that Equity Long Only Funds lost 1.4% in June, slightly underperforming the 1.3% loss in the Russell 3000 Index. “Equity Long Bias funds lost 0.9% in June, reversing a 2.6% gain in May and marking the first negative month since losing 0.4% in October 2012,” Waksman said.

Funds of hedge funds shed $1.5 billion (0.3% of assets) in June, reversing a $428 million inflow in May. Funds-of-funds have attracted net inflows in just three of the past 24 months.

The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers found that managers grew less bearish on the S&P 500 in July, but opinions were pretty evenly split between bullish or neutral on the market’s prospects for August.


The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge database tracks hedge fund flows on a monthly basis. The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers appears monthly, as does the TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Hedge Fund Flow Report, which provides detailed analysis of hedge fund flows, assets, and returns.
