Asia may the future of the hedge fund industry, but according to the latest figures, the future is not now.
Asian hedge funds were hit by US$700 million in net redemptions in the first quarter, Hedge Fund Research reports. All told, Asian hedge funds grew slightly to US$77 billion thanks to strong performance in the region, which many in the industry are betting is home to the most opportunities for hedge funds.

“Asian hedge funds were confronted with a variety of divergent market influences in the first quarter, and Investor flows to Asian hedge funds reflected this,” Kenneth Heinz, president of HFR, said.
