Emanagers Total Index loses 0.74% in May (+1.69% YTD)

Friday, June 22, 2012

Florian Guldner, Opalesque Research:

Emerging manager hedge funds and managed futures funds posted losses for the turbulent month of May, according to our first estimation based on the data of 294 funds listed in Opalesque Solutions' Emanagers database.

The Emanagers Total Index declined 0.74% in May, but is still up 1.69% for the year, thanks to strong results in January and February. Estimates for April and March were corrected to -0.78% and -0.35% respectively. Since inception in January 2009, the index grew 59.4% and outperformed both the global stock market and hedge fund indices.

Over the last 12 months, the index lost 2.49% with 8 negative and 4 positive months, compared to losses of 3.95% for the Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index and 13% for the MSCI World Index.

Last month's loss was driven by hedge funds: The Emanagers Hedge Fund Index lost 2.05% and is now up 3.01% year-to-date.

All strategies lost in May, with relative value funds performing best (-0.03%) and long-bias equity hedge funds performing worst (-5.46%). On a year-to-date level, event-driven strategies lead the ranking (+7.52%), followed by relative value (+4.01%), equity long-short (+3.80%), equity long-bias (3.58%), global macro (-0.11%) and multi-strategy funds (-0.46%).
