12 May 2021 - Hedge funds continued their resurgence in the first quarter of 2021, building on the momentum witnessed at the end of 2020 with positive returns for almost three quarters of funds.
As further substantiation of the sector’s strong performance, not only did funds administered by the Citco group of companies (Citco) see more than $9bn in total net inflows from investors in the first quarter, but Citco also experienced record numbers of capital transactions at January month-end, which were quickly surpassed in March.
These are the insights from Citco’s Hedge Fund report for Q1 2021, offering detailed metrics on hedge fund performance, trade volumes, treasury volumes and investor flows. It follows the Citco 2020 Hedge Fund report, which outlined the exceptionally unusual but progressively strong year for hedge funds in 2020.
With encouraging signs for the industry demonstrated in the 2021 Q1 Hedge Fund report, Citco remains on hand to support the global alternatives sector with proprietary technology and specialist expertise through 2021 and beyond.
