Hedge Fund Assets vs. Mutual Funds Assets

Some remarkable stuff in the ICI data (on mutual funds) and HFM data (on hedge funds) this week. The former pegged mutual fund assets at a little over $10-trillion, while the latter put hedge fund assets at having just broached the $2-trillion mark.

While the preceding is noteworthy in itself, it is even more impressive when you consider how hedge fund assets have grown as a percentage of the size of the mutual fund market. The following figure gives context back to 1990, with hedge funds having recently soared to being 20% of the size of the mutual fund market in recent years. Incredible.
