Greenwich Investable Hedge Fund Index (monthly liquidity) up 0.53% in February, +0.1% YTD

Tuesday, March 30, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - The Greenwich Composite Investable Hedge Fund Index moved higher during the month of February to enter positive territory for 2010. With the exception of the Macro Investable Index, all Greenwich Investable Indices advanced for the month and 7 of 9 are now positive on the year. The Composite Index (Monthly Liquidity) returned +0.53% compared to a gain of 1.23% for the MSCI World Equity Index in February. The Investable Futures Index led gains during the month, moving up 1.09%. Year-to-date, the Event-Driven and Long-Short Credit Investable Indices have been the best performers with gains of 2.42% and 1.74%, respectively.

“We have been pleased with the ability of fund managers to actively manage risk during the first quarter of 2010. The majority of portfolio managers were able to minimize drawdowns in January while still positioning their funds to capture market moves to the upside in February. We expect most hedge fund strategies to outperform global equity markets in 2010 if the volatility experienced during the first quarter continues,” noted Clint Binkley, Senior Vice President.
