eVestment's Top Hedge Funds In July

1060 Capital Management's 1060 Capital Opportunity Fund was again the hedge fund product most viewed overall by the investors and their advisers who subscribe to eVestment's platform in July, maintaining their Number 1 spot for a third consecutive month. Second and third place was Wellington Management Company's ALTA fund and Sculptor Capital Management's Sculptor Master Fund, respectively; this is the first time that these products have made the top three since the folks at eVestment began sending us their monthly report.

At the regional level, Wellington's ALTA won in the United States, and there were also wins for Marshall Wace's MW Eurkea Fund (Europe ex-UK); Blackrock's 32 Capital Fund (Asia ex-Japan); Polar Asset Management's Polar Long/Short Fund (Canada). For the first time we saw a tie in the UK, with GSA's Diversified Master Fund and GAM's Systematic Core Macro Master Fund taking top honours, and another tie in Africa/Middle East, with Lazard Asset Management's Lazard Rathmore product and P/E Investments' FX Strategy Standard receiving the most views.

At the firm level, bond trading behemoth PIMCO had the most overall views, with it's Multi-Asset Alternative Risk Premia fund the firm's individual product with the most eyeballs. Given that the product didn't make the top ten individual products, one can deduce that PIMCO had a strong showing across it's product range to come out on top last month. Marshall Wace was second - the firm's MW Eureka Fund product was its most viewed offering - and Man Group was third, the firm's Alternative Risk Premia Strategies product the London-listed investment manager's being their most viewed strategy.
