eVestment Releases January Hedge Fund Assets Flow Report

Feb 23, 2014

Investors continue to allocate to the hedge fund industry in January, according to the latest asset flows report from eVestment.

Data from the Atlanta-based investment database and technology solutions firm’s January 2014 Hedge Fund Asset Flows report estimated that investors added approximately $4.9 billion to the industry last month. Despite the inflow, performance losses of $12.8 billion resulted in the industry dropping 0.3% to $2.8 trillion.

Equity strategies appear to be a recent favorite among investors, as exposure in the sector surpassed equity strategies for the fourth consecutive month. January saw an estimated $13.8 billion added into equity strategies—the largest allocation for the group since August—while investors redeemed $7.3 billion from credit strategies in the same period.

Following in credit strategies’ footsteps is macro funds, which lost $4.7 billion last month, bringing its total redemption in the last three months to $13.5 billion. Managed futures are not far behind, losing $8.8 billion in the last three months.

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.
