Hedge funds enjoyed inflows for the second-straight month in September—and if the inflows continue, the industry could end 2012 larger than it began the year.
Hedge funds took in a net $3.4 billion in September, according to BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. The industry had been down by $12.2 billion as recently as the end of July, but August's $7.7 billion inflow and September's gain have it down only a net $1.1 billion now.

Hedge funds globally managed $1.8 trillion at the end of September.
