Hedge Funds Add $17.5B In April

Jun 6 2011 | 1:50pm ET

Hedge funds are four-for-four this year in taking in new money, according to a new report.

The industry added $17.5 billion in assets in April, TrimTabs Investment Research and BarclayHedge's monthly flow report shows. Hedge funds now manage $1.8 trillion, the most since October 2008.

Hedge funds have enjoyed inflows in the first four months of the year.

Multi-strategy funds were the biggest beneficiary of the flows, taking in $5.3 billion. Macro funds saw inflows of $3 billion and fixed-income funds $1.3 billion.

"The appetite for bonds appears to be insatiable," TrimTabs' Vincent Deluard said. "Hedge fund investors, ETF investors, mutual fund investors and speculative traders are piling into the space."

Fixed-income funds have seen positive flows in 11 of the last 12 months.
