The latest research report by Singapore-based firm, Eurekahedge, reveals that last month European hedge funds recorded the biggest gains, up 2.5 per cent (equivalent to USD344.5 billion AuM). The MSCI Europe Index gaining 11.54 per cent to outperform the US, a narrowing in sovereign spreads and CDS, and improved investor sentiment certainly combined to make conditions favourable for hedge funds. But over the course of the year, it is the continuing interest in UCITS III funds that seems to be fuelling capital inflows. Year-to-date, they’ve now attracted USD5 billion according to Eurekahedge, and whilst figures show that the US is still by far the biggest hedge fund centre, its market share has fallen (down from 51 per cent to 44 per cent). From a domiciliation perspective, Luxembourg and Dublin combined account for 6 per cent, but with the Cayman Islands falling to 36 per cent, these European onshore centres are likely to grow in tandem with evermore UCITS fund launches.
