Total assets under management by global hedge funds now stand at US$1.53 trillion as the sector saw some healthy inflows in May. North American hedge funds continue to attract the most capital; however, most other regions also saw net inflows during the month. We expect inflows to pick up later in the year to take the industry assets up to US$1.75 trillion by the year-end.
