More hedge funds closed and fewer hedge funds opened in the third quarter, the worst three months in three years for the industry in terms of performance.
Some 213 hedge funds liquidated between July and September, the most since the beginning of last year, Hedge Fund Research data shows. But the total number of hedge funds actually increased, thanks to 265 funds opening their doors over the period.
