Expect a surge of hedge fund money into the commodities market next year, if hedge fund managers themselves are to be believed.
More than three-quarters of the hedge funds and institutional investors polled by Barclays Capital said that direct commodity investments would increase next year from the $50 billion seen this year. And more than half say they have already increased their commodity exposure this year.
Over the next three years, the outlook is even brighter, with 91% of the managers expecting to begin, maintain or increase their commodity investing.
Some 40% of the 300 respondents were hedge fund managers.
Copper is expected to be the biggest winner, with grain and crude in its wake. Sugar, diesel, steel and natural gas, by contrast, attracted fewer supporters.
