Hedge funds offer hope in bubble times

Hedge funds may have stung a lot of investors during the financial crisis but their ability to outperform in times of trouble has put them back on the radar of baby boomers who are worried about bubbles forming in stocks and the property market.

“In markets like 2014, where the index doesn’t generate a significant overall return, long short funds have the ability to display outperformance by having exposure to stocks that both rise and fall” said Auscap Asset Managment principal and portfolio manager Tim Carleton „That ability is probably why long short funds are getting attention at the moment”.

“A long short equity fund is still exposed to the market, if markets go well you have exposure and if markets correct you have some protection in place to minimize loss of capital,” he said.

Steve Miller, head of fixed income at the world’s biggest money manager Blackrock, said if investors are worried about the direction of interest rates and how financial assets have run way ahead of slugging Australian business cycle, hedge funds are a good option, even though they still ring “alarm bells” among many investors.

    Why not just start a firm, develop a track record of success over 1-3 years, raise more capital and continue with their success? Not sure why there needs to be radical change in a segment of the market that is extremely objective when determining who is good at investing money?
