The first half of 2010 has witnessed a fundamental shift in the global hedge fund industry as it enters a period of significant growth set against economic recovery and increasing scrutiny from regulators and institutional investors. The recent momentum has carried industry assets across the US$1.5 trillion mark, with sentiment high for continued growth. The resurgence can be attributed largely to strong performance in 2009, but net inflows have also steadily increased. Further testament to the industry’s dramatic rebound can be seen in the increasing number of hedge fund managers who are now closing their funds to new investors.
