Summary:

The Asian hedge fund industry continued to attract new investor capital in 2Q11 despite increasing inflationary pressures, volatile commodity and global equity markets, and uncertainty regarding both U.S. and European sovereign debt according to data released today by HFR (Hedge Fund Research, Inc.), the leading provider of information on and analysis of the global hedge fund industry. Investors allocated $2.6 billion of new capital to Asia-focused hedge funds in 2Q11, offsetting a performance-based decline and increasing the total capital invested in Asia-focused funds to nearly $90 billion (7 trillion JPY; 603 billion Chinese Yuan).
