Hedge Funds -Risk Reduction in Uncertain Markets


An analysis of the prospects for hedge funds in 2019 and a look back at performance in 2018


In this note we summarise the performance of hedge funds in 2018 and make some comments on the prospects for 2019, following what has been a good start to the year for the asset class. We then report on the results of Preqin’s latest annual survey of investors’ attitudes to hedge funds – one outcome of this study was that 79% of respondents planned to either maintain or increase their exposure to these types of funds during 2019, the highest such level since late 2014. Finally, we take a look at the listed hedge fund sector in terms of performance, rating and asset flows.
