2011 Key Trends in Fund of Hedge Funds



The global fund of hedge funds industry witnessed some very strong trends over the last decade, in
terms of size and population as well as different aspects of the industry’s make-up. After growing at
an incremental pace in the 2003 to mid-2008 period, the size of the industry reached US$826.2 billion
in March 2008. However excessive losses and widespread redemptions, triggered by the global
financial crisis and some high profile frauds, reduced total assets under management substantially
and by July 2009 industry assets fell to US$433.7 billion.
