Investors Rebalance Their Hedge Fund Portfolios

Extract from Preqin Investor Outlook: Alternative Assets H1 2019

2018 was a challenging year for hedge funds: a difficult Q4 for performance, coupled with a net $34bn being withdrawn from hedge funds, resulted in AUM dropping over the last six months of the year to $3.45tn as at December 2018. However, the industry is still 3x the size it was a decade ago, as investors recognize the ability of hedge funds to act as a portfolio diversifier and risk mitigator.

Following the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), faced with the prospect of not meeting longterm liabilities, many institutional investors turned to hedge funds and capital flowed into the asset class. Over the second half of this decade, however, capital entering the asset class has slowed and there are signs industry AUM may have begun to plateau. The rush to build up portfolios has slowed as many investors have reached their desired level of exposure. Our results reveal that four out of five investors plan to maintain or increase their exposure to hedge funds in 2019. We also expect investors to redeem and rebalance in favour of less correlated strategies to ensure capital is protected in the event of a downturn.
