Summary:

Improved performance in May and June has provided a more positive outlook for the hedge fund industry following the worst start to a year since 2008. Second quarter performance was almost twice as strong on average compared to Q1 2014, taking year-to-date (YTD) returns to 3.86%. The hedge fund benchmark is behind the 4.28% YTD returns as of the end of Q2 2013, and investors may be expressing concerns that three of the six months in 2014 so far have seen negative average returns.
