Hedge Funds on Course for Worst Performance Year Since 2011, Though Still Outperforming Public Markets
  • Fourth consecutive month of negative returns for hedge funds
  • The longest negative period since Jun – Nov 2008
  • Hedge funds are still outperforming public markets

The Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark returned -1.44% in September, marking another difficult month for hedge funds as relative value funds were the only top-level strategy to see positive performance. This is the fourth consecutive month of negative returns for hedge funds, the longest negative period since Jun – Nov 2008. Overall returns for 2015 YTD now stand at only 0.18%, with the year on course to have the lowest returns since 2011. However, with the S&P 500 currently returning -3.14% for the year so far, hedge funds are still outperforming public markets.
