Distressed debt, long/short equities and fixed income hedge funds are the top-performing strategies, up 15.30%, 13.35% and 10.71%, respectively, as of end-November. 

Long/short equities strategies have attracted the largest share of overall net allocations to the industry, YTD, at US$78.0 billion.

Japanese hedge funds continue to generate the best returns of any region, up 24.08% as of end-November. But Greater China-focused hedge funds are also doing well, up 17.82%, outperforming the Hang Seng Index by more than 12% as of the end of November.
