According to an article from eFinancialCareers.com yesterday, Activist Hedge Funds are primed to explode in 2013.
Performance Activist hedge funds made a killing, and are primed to be even more aggressive through the final 10 months of 2013.
Activist investor Jana Partners saw two of its funds gain over 23% in 2012, while Cevian Capital’s Cevian II fund gained roughly 25%, and Daniel Loeb’s Third Point delivered a 33.6% gain in 2012.
These strong performances are likely to attract more capital for activist hedge funds that are already sitting on piles of cash, according to a new report from Moody’s Investors Service. The rating agency expects big things from activist hedge fund managers in coming months – in technology, industrial goods, consumer goods, basic material, pharmaceuticals and energy sectors.
