Hedge Funds Q2 2022

July 20, 2022


Preqin’s hedge fund benchmark declined by 7.95% during the quarter. Market volatility is unlikely to end in Q3, and the lack of attractive returns in 2022 has made investors nervous, influencing the way allocators think about their hedge fund allocations. That said, plenty of dislocations have formed over recent months, and could create long-term opportunities for the industry.

Despite a stressful Q2 2022, hedge funds once again protected investors, but less so than many had expected

Equity and debt markets were under pressure in the second quarter as investors suppressed prices due to rate hikes and an increased risk of global recession. US investors’ focus was on inflation changes and the Federal Reserve’s policy response to CPI movements. The US central bank aggressively increased the target range twice during the quarter in response to high inflation, shocking the markets with a 75bp hike in June.
