Hedge funds enjoyed their biggest inflows in almost a year in October, taking in some $16 billion.
Almost half of that total flowed into managed futures funds, which saw investors pour $7.9 billion, TrimTabs Investment Research and BarclayHedge said. Even funds of hedge funds, which have been hard-pressed to attract investors in recent years, brought in $3.3 billion.
"Hedge fund investors are exhibiting a healthier appetite for risk," BarclayHedge's Sol Waksman said. "They are finally venturing into areas like distressed securities after embracing conservative strategies for most of the year."
Distressed securities took in $3.8 billion and emerging markets funds $2.2 billion.
