HedgePole launches independent UCITS Alternative Indices

Tuesday, July 26, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - HedgePole AG, an independent service provider for hedge funds price collection and middle office services, announces the launch of two UCITS indices which focus on individual hedge fund strategies. The first two indices cover the Global Macro and Managed Futures/CTAs strategies. UCITS, a regulated onshore (hedge) fund vehicle, has seen strong growth over the last couple of years, now collectively managing more than USD 100 billion in the alternative strategies.

HedgePole indices are unique as they aim to cover all UCITS funds matching the selection criteria to give a fair, reliable and independent representation of the performance of the relevant strategies. HedgePole ensures that the constituent funds fully meet the pre-defined selection criteria such as compliance with the UCITS directive as well as basic characteristics of a hedge fund. Further, HedgePole sources the NAVs pro-actively and directly from the constituent fund managers or their administrators ensuring that each calculation includes 100% of the underlings’ latest updated NAVs.
