Many noticed that the cautious and prudent hedge funds (it is assumed that they are) have suffered serious losses in 2015-2016. This was a lot of writing.It is interesting that many funds made wrong bets in droves - on AMarkets materials.
Starting in 2016 for the hedge fund industry was the worst since 2009. The monetary amount of the industry of American hedge funds - it is something around $ 2.9 trillion - an estimation of David Rubenstein of the Carlyle Group LP. In the first quarter 2016 loss of industry was 1.9% - data Hedge Fund Research's global index. This is the worst figure since 2008. It is no wonder that clients derive the mass of the capital "fund-losers."
The outflow of the last two quarters was $ 16.6 billion. In 2015, 979 funds were closed due to the hopelessly unprofitable position. However, industry representatives offer investors not to worry and not to make hasty conclusions. 2015 and the start of 2016 was difficult, very difficult, volatile and with a mass of force majeure.Probably the hedge industry is mobilized in the coming months and will be able to earn something.
Investors, regardless of the level of knowledge and practice, to a large extent subject to collective panic. They see the loss, and in a hurry to withdraw their money.
However, this is the wrong strategy - all involve the same representatives of the hedge industry. Subsequent blocks can be profitable. Especially that the situation in the global economy is becoming clearer, more predictable, though not easy.
