Suffering their second-worst year ever didn't hit hedge funds where it hurts in January, according to a new report.

Investor redemptions fell to a record low in January, according to the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index. Gross outflows were just 0.53% on the month, while net inflows rose to 2.25%, the best figure since September.

GlobeOp Financial Services CEO Hans Hufschmid attributed the numbers in part to portfolio rebalancing and reallocation. But, he said, there could be other factors.
