Hedge Funds Inflows Total $8.3B In Aug.

Sep 9 2009 | 11:54am ET

Hedge funds have bounced back in a big way from catastrophic losses last year, and investors rewarded them last month with more than $8 billion in inflows.

The industry took in $8.3 billion in new money in August, according to preliminary data from BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. The inflow comes amidst an up-and-down year for hedge fund flows; investors pulled $20 billion from the industry in July. But the research firms say they expect the volatility of inflows and outflows to recede as the year comes to a close.

“By the end of the year, we expect flows to stabilize and probably be up slightly,” TrimTabs’ Vincent Deluard said.
