The Year 2021 Looks Bright for Hedge Funds

April 15, 2021 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

With the first quarter of 2021 behind us it is fair to say that so far hedge funds have seen profits looking up. According to eVestments, February was an especially good month with 80 percent of funds reporting earnings in the black.

The average fund was up 4.51%, and the industry as a whole (including the 20% of funds that faltered in February) funds climbed 3.22% on average. The year-to-date earnings came to 4.26%.

“Since post-pandemic onset in March 2020, the hedge fund industry has produced aggregate returns of nearly 20 per cent, which is the best 12-month return period for the industry since at least 2011,” said eVestment Global Head of Research Peter Laurelli.
