Hedge fund managers operate with an absolute return methodology to maximize returns, eliminating risks and often enhancing profitable returns using leverage. Hedge fund managers can take long and short positions in their investments. It allows them to seize more opportunities than traditional mutual fund managers providing profitable investment opportunities even when stock markets are plunging.

The total value of assets managed by hedge funds worldwide reached around USD 4.53 trillion in previous year. Fund managers are also increasingly applying artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML) techniques to improve operational efficiencies and boost returns.

Recovering Performance, Despite Challenging Market Conditions

The hedge funds industry seems to consolidate over the years, and fund managers worldwide seem to become more defensive in their strategies.

2021 was an excellent year for hedge funds, with industry AUM (assets under management) surging past the USD 4 trillion mark. In 2021, pension funds were anticipated to represent over one-third of the industry's assets under management (AUM). As industry operators garner revenue as an AUM share, increases in demand from this key market tend to boost the industry's performance. Multi-Strategy and Quant Equity hedge funds are once again among the most favorable. Another strategy that saw a dramatic change in sentiment is Generalist Equity. It may be low relative to the other Equity hedge fund strategies, including Sector-Specific, Market Neutral, and Quant Equity.
