Global Review 2008
After coming through one of the most dramatic years that markets have ever experienced in 2007, the global hedge fund industry emerged in relatively robust shape. As our extensive research reveals, derived from an analysis of our databases and industry surveys, hedge funds around the world are now managing about $2.65 trillion in assets – a very impressive leap from $2.079 billion at the start of 2007, and despite a slowdown in the rate of growth during the second half of the year. This pace of growth is even more remarkable when compared to a total worldwide asset count of $1.5 trillion only two years ago.
