Funds of funds outpace single manager counterparts in Asia


Asia was one of the beneficiaries of the resurgence in risk assets during September: the InvestHedge fund of hedge funds median for this category was up 2.66%, just outpacing the AsiaHedge single manager composite, which was up 2.64% for the month and 3.31% for the year to date. That said for the year, Asian funds of hedge funds are only up 0.15%. Funds of funds with Japan exposure have benefited from positions that took advantage of the yen’s strength, due to less monetary accomodation, and continued to rally in September.
