Hedge Funds Review - February 2012
Broad hedge fund performance was down or flat for the end of 2011, with returns for the year in negative territory. There was some positive performance to be found in specific strategies.
Running short on deals
Ticking economic timebomb

Rating the rich
Despite lacklustre performance across many strategies, hedge funds had good inflows, ending 2011 with total AUM of $1.71 trillion. Fixed income was the best performer and equity long/short the worst.
