Asian hedge funds rebuild assets, reach 18-month high

Indian, Chinese shares boost returns; investors make first net inflow since 2015

TOKYO -- Asia's hedge funds have the most assets under management since the end of 2015, thanks to brisk performance by Indian and Chinese stocks as well as more investor interest.

Funds in the region managed $117.1 billion at the end of June, U.S. company Hedge Fund Research said, climbing 6% from the end of March. The gain results largely from strong performances in emerging markets: Funds investing in Indian shares have logged roughly 27% returns since the beginning of the year, as that country's stock market stands near an all-time high. Those active in China have seen 16% returns, and even Japanese equities have yielded a healthy 7%.
