Hedge fund industry assets have increased by US$213 billion year to date and now stand at US$1.99 trillion, according to the latest data from Eurekahedge.

The bulk of the asset increase—US$127 billion—was the result of net asset inflows, with performance-based gains accounting for the remaining US$86 billion.

European fund managers are up 7.42% November YTD with net asset inflows for the year standing at US$53.6 billion.

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.
