Graphic of the Day: Consistent Flows to Medium-Sized Hedge Funds

By Hedge Fund Insight staff


flows to May 2018 by fund size

The global hedge fund industry has attracted US$342.1 billion of net asset flows since January 2013, out of which billion dollar hedge funds accounted for US$206.9 billion of these net capital allocations, while funds with assets under US$500 million collectively recorded net asset inflows of US$49.3 billion over this period. There may be a preference on part of investors to allocate to the larger billion dollar hedge funds, but there does seem to be  a growing recognition by investors in hedge funds that small-to-medium sized hedge funds (less than US$500 million) have a portfolio role too.
