Greenwich investable indices climb for second month in 2012

Monday, March 26, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update: The Greenwich Investable Hedge Fund Indices gained across nearly all strategies in February, led by strong results from Long-Short Equity managers. The monthly and quarterly redemption Composite Indices gained 0.79% and 0.86%, respectively, for the month. The Long-Short Equity Index was the best relative performer, advancing 1.62%, followed by the Long-Short Credit Index, which gained 1.01%.

“Equity markets continued their ascent in February driven by strong earnings and improving sentiment in Europe. As expected, directional strategies were the best performers, but we saw excellent results from Market Neutral managers as well. Funds continue to ratchet up their exposure and leverage as investor confidence improves,” said Clint Binkley, Senior Vice President.
