Hedge Fund Performance Report – June 2017

Industry Returns Positive for 8th Month in a Row Despite Above Average Deviations Across Strategies in June

With half of 2017 completed, the $3 trillion hedge fund industry is generally positive for the year, but has likely left many investors who have allocated in 2016/17 feeling uneasy. While the majority of products are producing positive returns, and the average positive return continues to outweigh the average loss, at the strategy level the picture is far less positive for some.

Key findings from this report include:

  • Hedge funds returned an average of +0.13% in June, +0.84% in Q2, and +3.26% YTD in 2017.
  • Smaller long/short equity and large event driven funds are leading the industry through June.
  • Emerging markets’ run continues as China funds posted another very positive month in June.
