Hedge fund flows as measured by the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index advanced 0.35% in April.

"Outflows tend to be seasonally higher at quarter ends as investors rebalance their portfolios," says Hans Hufschmid (pictured), chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial Services (LSE:GO.). "Despite this, net flows for April were slightly positive."

The GlobeOp Capital Movement Index represents the monthly net of hedge fund subscriptions and redemptions administered by GlobeOp. This monthly net is divided by the total assets under administration (AuA) for GlobeOp's fund administration clients.

Cumulatively, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index for April 2012 stands at 144.94 points, an increase of 0.35 points over March 2012. The Index has advanced 14.72 points over the past 12 months. The next publication date is May 11, 2012.

Published on the eighth business day of each month, the GlobeOp Capital Movement Index presents a timely and accurate view of investments in hedge funds on the GlobeOp administration platform. Data is based on actual subscriptions and redemptions independently calculated and confirmed from real capital movements, and published only a few business days after they occur. Following the month of its release, the Index may be updated for capital movements that occurred after the fifth business day.
