eVestment's Top Hedge Funds In January 2021

AlphaWeek's first peek at the viewing habits of eVestment's investor and consultant subscriber base in 2021 saw Select Equity Group's Cooper Square Fund receive the most clicks last month. Russel Investments' Absolute Return Tactical Strategy was second and Evanston Capital Management's The Weatherlow Fund I L.P. was third.

Global: Most Viewed Alts/HF Products January 2021
  Most Viewed Product's Firm Name Most Viewed Product
New Select Equity Group, L.P.  Cooper Square Fund

As a US- investor-focused fund, it's perhaps unsurprising that Cooper Square Fund was the most viewed by US-based eVestment subscribers. In Canada, Marret Asset Management's Marret Enhanced Tactical Fixed Income Fund was the most viewed product; in Japan, Winton Capital Management's The Winton Fund (Enhanced) Limited was the most viewed; in the UK, there was a three-way tie between Sirios Capital Management's Siroios Capital Partners II, L/P, Voya Alternative Asset Management's Voya Mortgage Investment Fund and Water Island Capital's Water Island Credit Opportunities Fund; in Europe ex-UK, Prime Capital's PCAM Blue Chip received the most views; in Asia ex-Japan, Hudson Bay Capital Management's Hudson Bay Fund LP saw the most clicks; and in Africa/Middle East, JP Morgan Investment Management's JPM US Research Market Neutral received the most views.

The managers of the two most viewed products also received the most views at the firm level, but perennial top 10 inhabitant AQR Capital Management took third place in this category, with the firm's DELTA strategy, also a regular in this category, receiving the most views of all of the products managed by AQR.

Regionally, the managers of the most popular individual products received the most views at the firm level, with the exception of Europe ex-UK, where CQS's received the most overall views, and in Canada, where IFM Investors Pty received the most clicks. In the UK, Water Island Capital pulled away from Voya Alternative Asset Management and Sirios Capital Management to take first place.

The top three most viewed products were also the top three 'Rising' products in January - those which receive the largest increases relative to their 12 month moving average - but in a different order, with Russell Investments' Absolute Return Tactical Strategy the overall biggest mover.
