FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hedge Fund Inflows Hit 18 Month High of $18.7 Billion in November
Hedge Fund Launches Fell to Record Low in 2009

New York, NY – January 12, 2010 – TrimTabs Investment Research and BarclayHedge reported that all hedge funds posted an estimated inflow of $18.7 billion in November, more than double the inflow of $8.2 billion in October.  The inflow in November was the largest since May 2008.

“Flows into hedge funds are back to pre-crisis levels,” said Sol Waksman, CEO of BarclayHedge.  “Nevertheless, the inflow of $54 billion in the latest four months reversed only a small portion of the redemptions of $402 billion from September 2008 through July 2009.”

In addition, funds of hedge funds took in $4.9 billion in November, their first significant inflow since March 2008.

“The liquidity constraints exposed in the 2008 meltdown forced funds of funds to reduce risk last year, and they missed most of the rally,” said Vincent Deluard, Global Equity Strategist at TrimTabs.  “They will be under pressure to perform strongly to justify their lofty fees.”

In a research note, TrimTabs and BarclayHedge also calculated that hedge fund launches fell to a record low of 1.8% of hedge funds’ assets in 2009.  The drop occurred because fewer funds were launched (10.4% of hedge fund count in 2009 versus 13.9% in 2008) and funds were launched with fewer assets (average assets of $452 million in 2009 versus $1.4 billion in 2008).
