The company reportedly told investors in October that the 13-year-old Macquarie Asian Alpha Fund would close.

Assets plummeted to $133 million in September after peaking at about $2 billion in 2015.
Hedge funds are typically aggressively managed portfolios of investments that use advanced investment strategies such as leveraged, long, short and derivative positions in both domestic and international markets with the goal of generating high returns.

According to Bloomberg, hedge fund closings hit $3 trillion, and “closures have outnumbered launches for the third year running: 580 funds decided to shut as of Dec. 3, compared with 552 openings, according to Eurekahedge.”
