Hedge fund renaissance?

According to the Barclay hedge database, at the beginning of the global financial crisis (GFC) in 2007, total assets under management (AuM) in hedge funds amounted to approximately $2.136trn. Subsequently in 2008 assets fell to $1.457trn, before staging an anaemic recovery through to 2012 when assets crawled higher to $1.798trn, a gain of 22% over four years.
