Hedge funds suffer money exodus

Meager returns, high fees drive investors away

The heyday of hedge funds is long gone.

TOKYO -- Once wielding powerful influence on global financial markets, hedge funds are losing customers as more investors shun their high fees amid poor returns.

Hedge funds tracked by Eurekahedge saw fund outflows of $60.7 billion by the end of February since April 2016. This is the greatest sum since the $426.9 billion exodus seen in fiscal 2008, during the financial crisis.
