Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - LW / True Alpha Hedge Fund Indices, presented below, are a series of non-investable benchmarks designed to be a representative composite of randomly generated portfolios of hedge fund strategy peers, factoring in both volatility and return. The performance of these indices are not reflective of discretionary fund-of-funds portfolios, nor are they intended as benchmarks for fund-of-funds portfolios.

Background: Lyster Watson & Company established a diverse selection of single manager hedge fund strategy indices for use with our proprietary True Alpha rating and ranking system (US Patent No. 7,707,092), which also served as a source of research, revealing that certain hedge fund strategies can provide optimal hedge fund replication solutions, an investment strategy separate from our fund-of-hedge-funds portfolios.
