This work does a follow-up study on Do Hedge Funds Hedge? focuses on the returns of hedge fund industry, and finds how its reported returns are resistant to market fluctuations. In this work, monthly data for different hedge funds and S&P 500 are compared, to generate correlation between them over various periods. As a result, a huge discrepancy between the changing volatility and hedge fund stable returns recommends the investors to review the reports given by hedge fund companies, which are possibly manipulated with strategies to highlight high returns and low risks over time. This work indicates a continuous trend in the hedge fund industry that is proven by the previous study, in the more recent timeframe, providing investors with insights to the reported returns over market risks.
