摘要:

We examine the hedging practice of hedge funds by proposing a measure of risk gap between hedge fund returns and stock holdings. In a comprehensive sample, about 78% of hedge funds have a negative risk gap. Risk gap significantly predicts future fund performance in the cross-section. On average, hedge funds in the bottom quintile ranked by risk gap outperform those in the top quintile by 3.87% per year on a risk-adjusted basis. Moreover, risk gap is significantly related to interfund connectedness and liquidation risk. Overall, our results suggest that hedge funds that engage in risk management have better performance and lower systemic risk.
