Investors Trickle Out Of Hedge Funds

Jan 12 2012 | 5:09am ET

Despite an extremely disappointing 2011, investors are not punishing hedge funds unduly this month.

The GlobeOp Capital Movement Index inched down 0.88 points to 140.18, perilously close to the level it stood at following the collapse of Lehman Brothers more than three years ago. But those numbers may not be as bad as they look at first glance.

"In line with year-end portfolio rebalancing, January net capital flows were negative," GlobeOp Financial Services CEO Hans Hufschmid said. "The net figures were therefore not unexpected. Interestingly, January's inflows were the highest in 12 months; outflows were the second-lowest in seven years."

Gross inflows into hedge funds rose 3.96%, according to GlobeOp, better than November's 3.52%. Still, gross outflows rose from 1.92% to 4.84% in the month to Jan. 1.
