About TrimTabs Methodology

  1. We restrict our survey sample for each hedge fund category to funds that report their returns and update their assets under management. If a fund reports its returns but does not change the amount of its assets under management, we assume it did not update its assets under management and we exclude it from our survey sample.

  2. We calculate the ratio of the flow to the total net assets (Flow/TNA) of each hedge fund category. To calculate the flow, we use the following formula:
    Flow = [Assets(t)-Assets(t-1)]-[Assets(t-1)*Returns(t)]

  3. We project the flows of the survey sample by multiplying the Flow/TNA for each hedge fund category by the total assets for that category at the end of the previous month.

  4. Finally, we gross up all flows to account for the estimated difference between the BarclayHedge survey sample
  5. and the entire hedge fund industry.
