Hedge funds up 0.20% (est) in July as most strategies struggle to make gains

Wednesday, August 03, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index finished up 0.20% in July led by gains in the Managed Futures sector.

Oliver Schupp, President of Credit Suisse Index Co., LLC, said, “The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index finished up 0.20% for the month with three out of seven sectors posting positive performance. Managed Futures experienced the most significant rebound, gaining 3.61% as long commodity and equity positions resulted in gains mid-month.”

Separately, the Index’s website has been redesigned to offer users an enhanced and comprehensive interactive experience. “Monthly performance for all sectors is available on our website,, which has been redesigned to give visitors more tools to analyze hedge fund industry performance,” Schupp said. “As one of the industry’s most transparent hedge fund index providers, the Dow Jones Credit Suisse family of hedge fund indexes provides insight into a previously opaque industry by publishing daily pricing, full index rules, sector weights, member fund listings, timely research and timely commentaries on current market trends.”
