Hedge funds cross $3 trillion mark

Global hedge fund assets crossed the $3 trillion (€2.2 trillion) mark in May for the first time on record, according to the May 2014 hedge fund asset flows report from eVestment.

Investor flows, which are at their highest level since the start of 2007, drove the industry’s assets under management over the watermark, says Peter Laurelli, head of research.

Investor interest in equity-focused strategies surpassed interest in credit strategies in May and is at the highest level since mid-2007.

However, investors display a resurging interest in credit strategies, with mortgage-backed securities funds, which Laurelli says are a bellwether for investor sentiment towards credit amid rate shifts, receiving strong flows in May.
