September Inflows Buoy Hedge Funds

Nov 13 2012 | 12:05pm ET

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.

"The hedge fund industry saw net inflows for the second month in a row in September, which was a notable improvement from earlier this year," BarclayHedge founder Sol Waksman said.

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

Regionally, investors favored hedge funds in continental Europe, Canada and Japan, according to the report. All eight regions tracked by BarclayHedge and TrimTabs saw gains in September.
