Fund of hedge fund managers are moving out of distressed debt due to few opportunities, and investing with long/short stock pickers, according to the latest monthly survey of fund of hedge fund managers by Hedge Funds Review.

Convertible arbitrage and merger arbitrage are seen as increasingly popular strategies, as is equity market neutral.

Managers are also moving out of managed futures/CTAs, and foreign exchange.

Directional strategies such as global macro are also out of favour among managers
