Investors poured $58.7 billion in new money into hedge funds during the second quarter, HFR said, pushing total hedge fund assets to $1.74 trillion.

Among individual strategies, HF said that relative value arbitrage, which includes some multi-strategy credit funds, added $16.4 billion, and equity hedge $12.6 billion.
