“Volatility’s return has created opportunities for skillful global hedge fund investors across several investing disciplines. The unique macro environment and specific trends, including strength in the U.S. dollar, are aiding global macro strategies. As well, the seeds for corporate consolidation continue to drive opportunities in the event-driven arena. In the long-short space, lower correlations between individual stocks are offering plentiful alpha prospects for skilled stock pickers.”
