GlobeOp Capital Movement Index: May inflows higher at +2.29%

London & New York - 12 May 2011

Hedge fund flows as measured by the GlobeOp Capital Movements Index were positive 2.29% in May.

“After last month’s pause, investors continued their steady return to the hedge fund market,” said Hans Hufschmid, chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial Services.

The GlobeOp Capital Movement Index represents the monthly net of subscriptions to and redemptions from hedge funds administered by GlobeOp, divided by the total assets under administration (AuA) for GlobeOp’s fund administration clients. Redemptions were slightly greater than subscriptions for the month of April.

Cumulatively, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index for May 2011 stands at 132.48 points, an increase of 2.29 points over April 2011. The Index was based at 100 on December 31, 2005 and has advanced 16.70 points over the past 12 months. The next publication date is June 10th, 2011.

Published on the eighth business day of each month, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index presents a timely and accurate view of investments in hedge funds on the GlobeOp administration platform. Data is based on actual subscriptions and redemptions independently calculated and confirmed from real capital movements, and published only a few business days after they occur.
