Investors redeemed more money from than they added to hedge funds this month.
The SS&C GlobeOp Capital Movement Index, which measures the monthly net of hedge fund subscriptions and redemptions among funds administered by SS&C Technologies' GlobeOp platform, fell 1.22% this month. The decline follows net inflows in both February and March.
