Man Investments recently said that uncertainty over the U.S. economy was likely to create substantial trading opportunities for hedge funds in 2008 but possible market disruptions could affect some strategies.
In its annual review and preview report on the hedge fund industry, the firm predicts that hedge fund strategies likely to prosper next year will include relative value, event driven and managed futures. For the event-driven hedge funds, the report’s authors expect continued strength despite the recent slowdown in the number of mergers and acquisitions.
In addition,managed futures strategies will benefit from difficult market conditions since these have,historically, created strong market trends, which directional programs can exploit.

Volatility will continue to be the key factor in determining how vigorously hedge funds perform.”
