Points
  • March was not pleasant for many hedge funds.
  • Big-name managers like Lone Pine, Holocene, Candlestick, Suvretta, and more lost money as industry-wide alpha " or returns beyond the overall market " is on pace for its worst year since 2015, according to client data from Morgan Stanley's prime brokerage unit.
  • March ended with a massive market event, thanks to the implosion of Bill Hwang's family office Archegos that dealt major losses to banks like Credit Suisse and Nomura.
  • Meanwhile other banks, such as Morgan Stanley, offloaded some losses to hedge fund clients with the implied trade-off that those managers would get in on the hottest IPOs, according to a CNBC report.
