Hedge Funds Outperformed But The Devil Is In The Details

The Weekly Brief

The return of market volatility in February hurt equity markets significantly. For the first time in 15 months, the MSCI World ended the month in the red, down -3.5%, as EMU and Japanese markets underperformed. One area of concern is that fixed income did not provide protection. The Barclays Global Aggregate Bond Index was also down in February. Actually the equity market rout appears to have been caused by fears of inflationary pressures, pushing bond yields higher in anticipation of a tighter monetary stance in the U.S. The positive correlation between equity and bond returns is an issue for investors looking for protection and diversification. In a context where investors are growing increasingly uncomfortable with the valuation of risk assets, Alternative UCITs continued to experience sizeable inflows in early 2018. Over the past three months (November-January), Alternative UCITs funds in Europe saw significant inflows (EUR 14.2bn), according to Morningstar.
