Redemptions from Hedge Funds Exceed Subscriptions for the Seventh Month in a Row
The pace of Hedge Fund redemptions accelerated slightly in August to -$18.92 billion (-0.38% of industry assets). August’s outflows followed -$16.88 billion in net redemptions in July. Even with August’s slight increase, however, net redemptions remain in a slower trend than we observed in the late spring and early summer periods of 2022 in which April saw -$22.40 billion in excess redemptions; May booked -$27.53 billion; and June showed -$42.14 billion.
A -$54.13 billion trading loss during the month brought total hedge fund industry assets to more than $4.96 trillion as August ended.
