Chang Hwan Sung is launching a hedge fund at Samsung Asset that uses computer models to bet on rising and falling Asian stocks; Nigel Hart is starting a hedge fund that will bet on and against equities globally; and William Douglas has left the bank to launch a European credit hedge fund called Caius Capital with Antonio Batista.

Eurekahedge said that investors allocated $77bn to hedge funds in 2015, more than twice the $34.5bn in assets inflows recorded in 2014.

Meanwhile, Vanguard attracted $256bn in fresh capital last year or an increase of 5.3% from 2014; and Guard Capital said it would start accepting money for its hedge fund after returning 8.1% in 2015. GSAM's assets was up 5% in the fourth quarter of 2015 on strong liquidity inflows to reach $1.252tln.
