Markets may be going mad, but according to one giant fund administrator, investor are still putting their money into hedge funds.

Hedge fund flows as measured by the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index advanced 1.11% in August.

Cumulatively, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index for August 2011 stands at 135.06 points, an increase of 1.11 points over July 2011. The Index was based at 100 on December 31, 2005 and has advanced 14.57 points over the past 12 months. The next publication date is September 12, 2011.
