Monthly Hedge Fund Asset Flow Data by Strategy

We estimate the hedge fund industry posted an inflow of $4.0 billion (0.3% of assets) in May after posting an outflow of $3.4 billion (0.3% of assets) in April. Thanks to poor performance - hedge funds posted a negative return of 3.1% in May, the first since February 2009 - industry assets decreased for the first time since July 2009. Total hedge fund assets stand at $1.6 trillion, 31.3% south of the record $2.3 trillion in June 2008. We estimate that funds of hedge funds posted an inflow of $26 million (0.005% of assets) in May, the third straight inflow. In fact, funds of funds (down 2.1%) outperformed hedge funds (down 3.1%) in May for the first time since February 2009. Commodity trading advisors (CTAs) are also gaining traction. They posted inflows of $681 million (0.3% of assets) in May and $2.6 billion (1.2% of assets) in the past three months.
