Opalesque Industry Update - Greenwich Alternative Investments report that hedge funds show mixed results for February, but all strategies remain positive year to date.

Initial estimates reveal February’s leading strategy is Event-Driven (+1.18%), followed by Long-Short Equity (+1.04%); both strategies were top performers in January as well.
