Hedge Funds Bounce Back

The Wall Street Journal reported this week that hedge funds are bounding back, with investors pumping up the industry to a size not seen since before the financial crisis laid it low.

Total hedge-fund assets are approaching $2 trillion and are soon expected to surpass their peak in early 2008, according to industry analysts. Even start-ups and smaller funds, which were shunned by many investors in the wake of the crisis, are benefiting. The resurrection of hedge funds, which invest money for wealthy individuals, pension funds and other large investors, marks yet another sign that the effects of the financial crisis are receding.
