Hedge funds on track to end 2019 with four consecutive positive quarters

Hedge fund managers recorded a second positive month in the fourth quarter of 2019, with the equal-weighted index up 0.73 per cent and the asset-weighted index up 0.20 per cent in November following the positive geopolitical developments surrounding the US-China trade negotiations.

On an annual basis, returns were positive across geographic and strategic mandates, supported by the risk-on sentiment and accommodative central bank policies throughout the year. 

Approximately 32.2 per cent of the hedge fund managers tracked by Eurekahedge have generated double-digit returns as of November 2019 year-to-date.
