Despite Hedge Fund loss of 0.9% for the month of June Inflows Remain Strong

New York (HedgeCo.Net) – Morningstar reports that the Morningstar MSCI Composite Hedge Fund Index dropped 0.9% in June, the MSCI World Stock Index soared 5.1% during the same period.

“Hedge fund strategies came up short in June despite strong overall equity market performance,” said Mallory Horejs, alternative investment analyst for Morningstar. “Trend-following funds were hit especially hard due to several mid-month price-trend reversals across asset classes.”

Among the best performing hedge funds were International equity-oriented strategies.

Despite the hedge funds lackluster performance, investors were not deterred.  With an estimated $1.8 billion of inflows in May, the streak continues with four consecutive months of inflows.

Credit strategies were in high demand and funds in the long/short debt and debt arbitrage categories received the most inflows of $385 million and $367 million, respectively. Multistrategy hedge funds also fared well, netting inflows of $363 million in May, while fund of funds overall leaked roughly $658 million. Morningstar’s Europe long/short equity hedge fund category experienced the largest net redemptions of all single-manager categories, bleeding $169 million.
