Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund index posts positive February returns, up 0.68% for the month (0.85% YTD)

Monday, March 15, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Final performance for the Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index (“Broad Index”) is confirmed up 0.68% in February

Oliver Schupp, President of Credit Suisse Index Co., Inc., said, “The Credit/Suisse Tremont Hedge Fund Index returned 0.68% in February with seven out of ten sectors posting positive performance for the month.

"Top performing sectors included Managed Futures (+1.81%), Long/Short Equity (+1.32%) and Global Macro (+1.10%). Managed Futures and Global Macro managers capitalized primarily on favorable fixed income and foreign exchange positions which included long exposures to short term interest rates and short exposures to the Euro and the Sterling. Long/Short Equity managers were able to recover some of their January losses as a result of net long holdings amid positive equity markets in February.

"On the other hand, Dedicated Short and Equity Market Neutral managers posted the weakest performance this month, down 3.20% and 1.35% respectively."

The Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index (“Broad Index”) is one of the industry’s premier asset-weighted hedge fund indices. Unlike equal-weighted indices, the Broad Index does not underweight top performers and overweight decliners in seeking to provide the most accurate representation of the hedge fund universe.
