Hedge Fund Performance In November

Hedge fund performance in November 2011 was more disappointing than any time since the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers. Hedge funds have failed to deliver impressive returns, and it becomes more difficult for them to bet or remain their previous earns. Even hedge fund titans such as George Soros and Carl Icahn are returning investors’ money. According to HSBC’s Head Weekly, we summarized returns for certain well known hedge funds below:
