Credit Suisse/Tremont monthly commentary: managed futures and directional strategies best performers in March

Wednesday, April 21, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - A new monthly commentary offers insight into March hedge fund performance. Some key findings from the report include:

  • All strategies except Dedicated Short Bias were positive for the month, with five strategies registering gains over the 2.0% mark.
  • Managed Futures managers experienced the best performance in March, with gains of 4.25% largely due to trend followers who were able to generate profits across many sectors including equities, commodities and currencies.
  • The second highest performer, Emerging Markets, benefitted from the rallying of risky assets and the economic recovery as concern surrounding the ongoing Greek debt crisis appeared to ease
  • Long/Short Equity managers also delivered gains in March, up 2.99%, as equity markets around the globe experienced run-ups, although many managers remained cautions due to broad macro-economic concerns
