RELATED TOPICS​

Eurekahedge, using data from With Intelligence, reports that hedge funds were down 1.00 per cent in April against a backdrop of growing geopolitical and macroeconomic uncertainty.

Hedge fund managers declined -1.00 per cent on an equal-weighted basis and -1.18 per cent on an asset-weighted basis in April. Hedge funds encountered a confluence of headwinds stemming from the escalating Russia-Ukraine war, COVID-19 lockdowns in China and aggressive monetary policy tightening by global central banks to combat rising inflation. On a year-to-date basis, global hedge funds were down -2.08 per cent over the first four months of 2022.

Returns were negative across geographic mandates in April, with the European mandate taking the lead with a return of -0.61 per cent while the Latin American mandate trailed behind their peers with a return of -2.27 per cent. Across strategies, the CTA/managed futures mandate performed the best with a return of 2.31 per cent while the long/short equities mandate trailed behind their peers with a return of -2.48 per cent.
