eVestment's Top Hedge Funds In May 2020

This month's peek into the viewership statistics of the institutional investors and consultants which subscribe to the eVestment platform shows a brand new entrant to the number 1 spot, with 1060 Capital Management's 1060 Capital Opportunity Fund, LP taking last month's top spot as the most viewed product across all strategies and geographies. Capital Fund Management's CFM IS Diversified Program was in second place, and Allianz Global Investors' AllianzGI Structured Alpha 500 in third.

At the firm level, Bridgewater stayed in first place, with Pure Alpha 18% Volatility Strategy being the most popular product from Bridgwater's stable, and AQR jumped two places from fourth in April to second last month, with Global Style Premia Long Only Equity being favoured (making a nice change from DELTA Strategy).

The biggest risers in May at the product level were, perhaps unsurprisingly, 1060 Capital Management's 1060 Capital Opportunity Fund, LP, and Allianz' AllianzGI Structured Alpha 500 product and AQR's Global Style Premia Long Only Equity whilst at the firm level, Oyster Asset Management beat out 1060 Capital Management into first place with CQS in third.
