Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, Q2 2019
As geopolitical tensions and trade uncertainties intensify, the global macroeconomic outlook is increasingly uncertain. With bond yields falling, however, equities have rallied this year following a difficult Q4 2018. With these tailwinds, hedge funds have had an extremely strong start to 2019, although they did not match the double-digit returns of the S&P 500 PR Index. What’s more, Preqin data indicates that investor appetite for hedge funds is increasing: we have recorded the highest ever quarterly number (220) of investor mandates in Q2 2019.
In this Q2 2019 edition of the Preqin Quarterly Update: Hedge Funds, we present the latest data on performance, fund launches, investor fund searches and the largest managers in the industry.
