Hedge Funds Doing Well in 2019

July 22, 2019 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

There were more assets under management in the hedge fund sector during the first half of 2019 than during any time in the past. So says the HFR Global Hedge Fund Industry Report. Two factors contributed to this amassing of money: more money flowing into the sector, and better performance of the funds.

Total AUM for hedge funds soared to $3.245 trillion, slightly overtaking the previous record set in the third quarter of 2018 of $3.244 trillion. The funds saw about $78.8 billion worth of investments flowing in during Q1 and another $63.7 billion coming in during Q2. During Q2 there were $4.8 billion in redemptions.

Organic growth also contributed to the surge in AUM, with an overall gain for the industry of 7.44% during the first half of 2019. It is the best hedge funds have done since 2009, when gains came to 9.6%.
