    Hedge Fund Giant Is Trapped on the Naughty Step

    Hedge funds, though, remain the industry’s problem child – hence the relative underperformance of Man Group Plc, the world’s biggest publicly traded hedge fund. The firm’s traders took advantage of rallying markets to deliver positive investment performance worth $4.5 billion in the quarter, driving a modest 3.5 percent gain in assets under management to $112.3 billion. Last month, Man cut its goal to increase assets under management each year to between 1 percent and 6 percent from as much as 10 percent previously “to better reflect industry trends and the market environment.” So the company has conceded that it’s unlikely to revisit the 2018 inflows that were equal to 9.9 percent of assets, never mind the record 15.8 percent growth in 2017.

    UK main index bounces back on WPP strength; Relx tumbles

    The FTSE 100 added 0.5 percent, as a steep fall in information and analytics provider Relx curbed gains in the index, while the FTSE 250 bounced 1.1 percent to levels not seen since early November. "I think the market is progressively anticipating a compromise (on Brexit) ... I remain optimistic regarding the pound and more domestic UK shares," Raymond James analyst Chris Bailey said. WPP, the world's biggest advertising company, jumped 5 percent on its best day in nearly a year after results showed that although underlying net sales fell 0.4 percent in 2018, it was better than a forecast of a 0.5 percent dip.

    Hedge Fund Titan Can't Stop the Tears From Flowing

    Net inflows of $10.8 billion last year were offset by $7.7 billion of investment losses by the firm’s portfolio manager, plus a further $3.7 billion erosion from currency market moves. Perhaps more worrying is the drop in margins in the hedge fund’s most lucrative business category, its absolute return strategy. While the decline can be blamed on a shift toward institutional assets, which typically attract lower levies, it still hurts Man’s ability to generate revenue.
