Nearly half of these hedge funds posted single digit returns in their main funds in 2016. The returns have been lackluster when compared to the Standard & Poor’s 500 stock index which was up 12%, accounting for reinvested dividends. However, some of the firms still generate huge revenues from the fees charged.
