Offshore Hedge Funds: Survival and Performance, 1989-1995
Posted: 16 Nov 1998
We examine the performance of the off-shore hedge fund industry over the period 1989 through 1995 using a database that includes both defunct and currently operating funds. The industry is characterized by high attrition rates of funds, low covariance with the U.S. stock market, evidence consistent with positive risk-adjusted returns over the time, and little evidence of differential manager skill.
