Hedge funds record Q3 net inflows of $24.6bn

Asset inflows stand at $45.4 billion so far this year, the highest level on record. This compares with net inflows of $16.3 billion for the whole of 2002.

Long/short equity hedge fund strategies attracted the highest inflows by segment, seeing third quarter net inflows of $5.9 billion. Tass believes this demonstrates an increasing desire by investors to participate in the equity market rebound this year while also gaining exposure to non-correlated absolute return strategies.

The next most popular strategies were event driven and global macro, which attracted net inflows of $5.6 billion and $3.1 billion respectively.
