TrimTabs and BarclayHedge: hedge fund industry took in net $8.2bn (0.4% of assets) in July

Thursday, September 12, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research reported today that the hedge fund industry took in a net $8.2 billion (0.4% of assets) in July 2013, reversing an $8.9 billion outflow in June, according to estimates based on data from 3,327 funds.

“July’s volume was well off the blazing pace set in May, when the industry took in a net $18.8 billion, the largest inflow in the past 2½ years,” said Sol Waksman, president and founder of BarclayHedge. “Nevertheless, industry assets climbed to a five-year high of $1.97 trillion in July.”

The TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Hedge Fund Flow Report noted that Equity Long Only funds gained 2.9% in July, reversing a 1.5% loss in June, but trailed the Russell 3000 Index’s 5.5% gain for the month. “Equity Long Bias funds, however, gained 3.9% in July, their best showing since gaining 4.2% in April,” Waksman said.

Funds of hedge funds shed $4.1 billion (0.9% of assets) in July, building on a $1.5 billion outflow in June. Funds of funds have attracted net inflows in just three of the past 24 months.

Meanwhile, the monthly TrimTabs/BarclayHedge Survey of Hedge Fund Managers found that managers grew notably more bearish on U.S. stocks in August. Also, nearly half of the managers surveyed in August were bearish on U.S. Treasuries while a similar proportion were bullish on the U.S. Dollar Index.
