Lipper: UK Hedge Funds led by Emerging Markets

UK-domiciled funds had a strong week to Friday May 8, led by global emerging markets products, according to data from Thomson Reuters research firm Lipper.

Asia Pacific funds also performed well, as did funds investing in European smaller companies. Global bonds, UK gilts and UK index-linked gilts were the only sectors to post negative returns in the week.
