The world’s biggest hedge funds walked away with the lion’s share of the industry’s $9.5bn of net inflows despite a whipping from market volatility which hurt the sector in the second quarter of 2010.

Hedge funds with more than $5bn in assets under management saw $8.8bn of new cash out of the $9.5bn which flowed into the sector, according to data provider Hedge Fund Research.

Those larger firms now manage over 60pc of the $1.65 trillion of assets under management – down from $1.67 trillion in the preceding three months.
