Macro Funds Lead As Hedge Funds Return To ’08 Asset Levels

Jun 24 2010 | 12:02pm ET

The hedge fund industry has recouped most of the assets it lost during the financial crisis, according to a new report.

Net inflows into hedge funds totaled $23.7 billion in April, according to research firm BarclayHedge. That puts the industry at $1.65 trillion, their best figure in 18 months, or since before the crippling outflows at the end of 2008.

Macro hedge funds enjoyed the biggest vote of confidence from both investors and the markets, with inflows of $2.5 billion in April. The strategy, which took in a total of just $4 billion last year, now boasts $94.9 billion in assets.
