Hedge funds rebounded in July after losing ground in June, according to the latest data from the Hennessee Group.
The Hennessee Hedge Fund Index rose 1.82% in July and is now up 6.91% year to date.
“Several managers were encouraged to see that $60 billion was redeemed from bond mutual funds in June, with most of it going to savings.” said Hennessee co-founder Charles Gradante, in a statement. “That money is building on the sidelines representing new future demand for equities.”
Equity long/short hedge funds gained 2.95% in July (11.22% YTD), arbitrage event-driven strategies were up 1.01% in July (5.82% YTD) and distressed funds were up 1.39% in July (8.31% YTD).
