Hedge Fund Asset Flows Report – October 2019

About the Report

Over 2,000 hedge fund firms submit data about their products to eVestment every month, including performance, assets, strategy details, primary investment markets and regional focuses. The calculated asset flows for these products provide the basis for estimating the distribution and flow of assets through the broad hedge fund industry.

As you are looking to supplement your own research with external sources, the kind of data provided in this report can help you to form an opinion about an asset class or follow the continuing, or emerging trend as you are developing the allocation decisions for your portfolio.

Report Highlights:

  • Investors redeemed an estimated $6.20 billion from hedge funds in October 2019, the industry’s 8th consecutive monthly outflow.
  • Managed futures had a third consecutive month of inflows, though allocations continue to go to a select group of firms.
  • Long/short equity was again a primary driver of outflows this month.
  • Macro managers continue to face elevated redemptions pressures, a theme persisting for all of 2019.
