In bond funds, there may be a slight tendency for the best managers to remain the best (Kahn and Rudd, 1995). As for hedge funds, the results depend upon the model used and can be contradictory. Argawal and Naik (2000a) highlight the fact that in hedge funds, as in traditional funds, the worst performers display persistence. On the other hand, Capoccii and Hubner (2004) demonstrate that the most mediocre performers remain the most consistent, and Kat and Manexe (2003) prove that it is the risk level and the correlation with the markets, and not the return, that is persistent.

For the markets – that prime source of corporate financing – their contribution is clear: they improve efficiency, provide better liquidity and ease risk transfer. For the hedge fund investor, they have already proved their appeal, whether as diversification in a traditional portfolio or as a substitute.
