However, hedge fund industry AUM declined by $15.6bn in July, extending the streak of consecutive monthly AuM decline to four months as investors pulled $18.8bn from the industry despite performance-based gains of $3.1bn, said Eurekahedge Report. The industry stands at $4.01tn as at July 2022. YTD industry AUM decline increased to $123.7bn in July, driven by $39.8bn of performance-based decline and $83.9bn of net outflows.
