Hedge Fund Figures Tallied for 2016

February 22, 2017 Debbie Jacobs Hedge Fund News

Eurekahedge has compiled much of the data to evaluate hedge fund performance and fund flows throughout the challenging 2016 investing year.

Managers have reported a performance-based gain of $35.1 billion in 2016. Net asset outflows totaled $55.1 billion. The vehicle with the largest redemptions were long/short equities with an outflow of funds totaling $29.1 billion. European based funds lost total AUM by 5.47 percent, with redemptions coming to $27.0 billion.

Currently about 10 percent of all hedge fund assets are in the global long-only sector, which is also one of the industry’s best performing strategies. Long only funds are comprised mainly of small hedge funds with $100 million of less under management. About 80 percent of the sector are in this category.

Management fees have been coming down as many investors have been fleeing the sector. Between 2006 and 2016 the average management fee went from 1.41 percent to 0.99 percent. Average performance fees also plummeted, from 12.25 percent in 2006 down to 10.86 percent in 2016.
