SS&C GlobeOp: Funds Up 1.71% In Jan

February, 2017

The gross return of the SS&C GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index for January 2017 measured 1.71%. Hedge fund flows as measured by the SS&C GlobeOp Capital Movement Index advanced 0.45% in February.

“SS&C GlobeOp’s Capital Movement Index for February 2017 of 0.45% reflects an increase in capital allocated to hedge funds, although at a slightly lower rate than the 0.59% increase reported in February 2016,” said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. “Outflows actually decreased in the year-over-year comparison, but this was offset by lower inflows. Overall, we are seeing fairly subdued activity in our indices, even as stock and bond markets have diverged significantly. This suggests investors remain very confident hedge funds are well-suited to take advantage of changing markets, including asset class rotation.”
