Hedge Fund Inflows Almost $11B In Jan.

Mar 2 2011 | 9:15am ET

Investors poured nearly $11 billion into hedge funds in January, indicating another step towards recovery for the industry.

"Net investor flows were positive and significantly about January 2010," HedgeFund.net reports. Positive, indeed: Investors moved $10.9 billion in new money into the sector, the third time in four months that they have added more than $10 billion to hedge funds.

Including $6.8 billion in performance gains, hedge fund assets rose to $2.49 trillion in January. But while other industry benchmarks say hedge funds are at or near their all-time high for assets, HFN's numbers show they have a long way to go.

"Total hedge fund AUM remain 18% below their all-time high, set in Q2 2008."
