India-focused hedge funds amongst the best performers in 2014

Monday, December 29, 2014

Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia:

India-focused hedge funds are amongst the best performers in 2014 after posting a strong net increase of 41.9% as at end Dec. 16, according to a report compiled by India-briefing.com. The report added that from January to October this year, India-based hedge funds registered a 36.4% return, way above the BSE benchmark Sensex index which returned 29.2% during the same period.

The BSE Sensex is the market-weighted stock market index of 30 well-established and financially sound companies on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

A separate report by data provider Eurekahedge said that India-focused hedge funds continued to deliver market-beating returns in October 2014. While the BSE benchmark Sensex index mustered a 2.7% gain in October, Indian hedge funds offered a superior 3.5% return during the same month.

Year-to-date, too, hedge fund returns trumped the Sensex’s performance. This marks a significant comeback for Indian funds from a dismal 2013, when they posted losses of 8.5%.
