UCITS Hedge Funds Manage $52.3 Billion

Mar 18 2010 | 8:44am ET

UCITS III-compliant hedge funds have proliferated over the last two years. But the regulator-friendly funds have underperformed hedge funds generally, although they have done better than funds of hedge funds over the past three years.

The roughly 500 UCITS hedge funds now manage $52.3 billion, according to Eurekahedge. While that’s just 3.5% of the $1.48 trillion currently managed by hedge funds, it is up from practically nothing a few years ago.

Unsurprisingly, most UCITS assets are invested in Europe, where UCITS compliance earns a fund entrée to most jurisdictions.

Europe is home to 41% of UCITS-compliant hedge fund assets. Funds with global mandates account for another 32%.
