Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, Q1 2017
The hedge fund industry has enjoyed a run of strong returns since March 2016, having made only one monthly loss during this time. As a result, the 12-month return of the Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark has gained 11.65%, comfortably above the return expectations of most institutional investors tracked by Preqin. Despite the return to form of hedge funds in the past year, some institutional investors remain cautious when it comes to their hedge fund portfolios. There are fewer investors searching for funds across most strategies, in particular, macro strategies and CTAs.
