Hedge funds performed well in 2020. Hedge fund AUM grew, reaching $3.87tn as of November 2020, an increase of 6% compared with 2019. After nine consecutive quarters of outflows, Q3 2020 marked the first quarter of net inflows, bringing much-needed optimism to the hedge fund industry. How would the industry fare in 2021?

In this webinar, we’ll be taking audiences through a 2020 review before shifting our sights to see how hedge funds might perform this year.
