Opalesque Ltd., a leading provider of online information services to the alternative investment industry, today announces the estimated January and updated 2011 year-end results for its series of indices tracking emerging hedge fund and managed futures fund managers. Index calculations are based on currently 303 funds listed in Opalesque Solutions' Emanagers database, the industry's only database dedicated exclusively to fund management firms less than 48 months old and with assets under management of less than $600 million at the time of the firm's inception.

The Emanagers Total Index, consisting of both hedge funds and managed futures funds, gained 2.72% in January after losing 1.6% in 2011. Since inception in January 2009, the index grew over 61%, outperforming both the global stock market and its hedge fund peers.

The positive January result was generated by the returns of hedge fund strategies, as the Emanagers Hedge Fund Index gained 3.97% (-2.45% in 2011). Managed futures funds tracked by the Emanagers CTA Index gained 0.56% (+0.39% in 2011).
