The 2004 edition of the Eurekahedge European Hedge Fund Directory lists detailed information on 1,119 European

hedge funds. This is up from the 496 European hedge funds listed last year. The number of new European hedge

funds grew rapidly over the past year, though growth now appears to be slowing slightly. Investment bankers,

analysts and fund managers continue to leave salaried jobs at major banks to set up boutique firms where the initial

income stream may not arrive until two or three years after launch.

Funds launching today appear to be better structured (with focused risk controls and external directors) than they

were four years ago. Whether this rapid growth constitutes a hedge fund “bubble” ready to burst or is just a

fundamental/structural change in the asset management industry is the major question being raised by the media. The

answer really depends on if there is a number of concurrent hedge fund blow-ups causing allocators (both leveraged

and unleveraged funds of funds, institutions and family offices) to drastically reduce their hedge fund exposure across

the strategy spectrum. Ultimately this will depend on performance and drawdown management. If hedge funds

continue to outperform market indices (even with increasing fees) without suffering numerous meltdowns, the

number of funds and the money allocated to them should continue to grow.

Strategy Breakdown

A plurality of European hedge funds by number (43%) are equity long/short, which compares similarly to the strategy

breakdown of North American hedge funds but is significantly less than the 56% of Asian hedge funds that employ

an equity long/short strategy.

Number of European Funds by Strategy

CTAs have been one of the best performing hedge fund strategies over the past three years, and the number of new

CTA launches globally has risen. European-based managers employing CTA strategies now represent 12% of the

entire European hedge fund universe, second only to equity long/short funds.

Macro and arbitrage strategies are tied for the third most popular European hedge fund strategies, with 8% market

share by number. Fixed income and multi-strategy managers each represent 7% of the universe. It is surprising that

relative value funds in Europe represent only 5% of the entire universe. In Asia relative value funds represent 6% of

the total market by numbers. With the availability of short borrow in Europe easier than in Asia, one would expect a

proportionally larger number of European relative value funds. Like in most hedge fund markets, event driven (4% of

the universe) and distressed debt (2%) are the strategies with the smallest market share.

Europe is leading the way in the growth (based on number of funds and assets under management) of long/short

credit funds when compared to the North American and Asian markets. This is primarily due to the depth of the credit

default swap market and consequential skill sets of individuals who wish to launch these types of funds. The largest

such fund is GLG Credit, but other names in this sector include Elgin, ORN, Regent Park and Cambridge Place.

Performance and Assets under Management

While European equity markets have fallen between 20% to 50% from their first quarter 2000 highs, European equity

long/short hedge funds have held up reasonably well with annualised returns of 12%. However these returns were

lower than the 17.7% average annualised returns seen in Asian and Japan equity long/short funds, although the risk

free rate in US dollar-denominated Asia funds were substantially lower than European Central Bank rates throughout

the last four years.

European distressed debt funds, like in Asia, were the best performers with annualised returns of 22.18%.

Multi-strategy funds, which usually are heavily weighted to long volatility strategies, was the second best performing

strategy with 13.87% annualised returns and annualised volatility of 9.39%. The average European CTA

performance was similar to its global peers with 12.39% annualised returns.

Performance of European Hedge Funds by Strategy

Strategy Average Annualised

Return Average Annualised Standard Deviation

Arbitrage 7.65 4.33 CTA / Managed Futures 12.39 16.44 Distressed Debt 22.18 12.96 Event Driven 11.70 4.28 Fixed Income 9.25 6.90 Long / Short Equities 12.23 11.36 Macro 8.14 10.98 Multi-Strategy 13.87 9.39 Others 8.34 11.19 Relative Value 9.43 10.64

Not surprisingly, most European hedge fund investors come from Europe. We believe that close to 75% of all money

invested in European hedge funds originates in Europe and only 20% from the United States. With the continued

strength of the Euro against the U.S. Dollar and Asian currencies loosely pegged to the Dollar, U.S. and Asian-based

hedge fund investors could increase their allocation to Euro-denominated hedge funds in the coming years. The vast

majority of European hedge funds have total assets under US$400 million.
