eVestment Releases November Hedge Fund Asset Flows Report

Dec 20, 2013

Assets in the hedge fund industry continue to rise, according to a new asset flows report from eVestment.

Data from the Atlanta-based investment database and technology solutions firm’s November 2013 Hedge Fund Asset Flows report estimated that investors allocated a total of approximately $15.3 billion to the industry that month—making November the fifth consecutive month of strong inflows.

Equity strategies dominate the industry last month, bringing in $10.56 billion in assets, while commodities saw outflows of $750 million during the same period. Allocations to long/short equity funds in November were also the largest since August 2009.

In a positive turn of events, investors allocated $3.5 billion into credit strategy assets in November—a reversal of October’s redemptions.

The healthy inflows during the month helped pushed total hedge fund assets to $2.84 trillion and the industry is on pace to increase by an estimated $256 billion this year—comparatively larger than 2012’s $144 billion increase.

Founded in 2000, eVestment acquired hedge fund analysis provider Pertrac and cloud-based hedge fund technology provider Fundspire last year. It now offers one of the world’s largest traditional and alternative investment databases.
