Equity Hedge Funds Fail to Beat Benchmarks Despite Tech Boost

Additional context on hedge fund performance – which is sometimes more nuanced than it seems at first.
As Jon Caplis shares with Hema Parmar for Bloomberg, returns for stock-picking funds have been mixed in 2024, despite rising values across many sectors and geographies. Managers who have done the best recently for example have concentrated on the large tech stocks.
