Oliver Schupp, President of Credit Suisse Index Co., Inc., said, “The Credit/Suisse Tremont Hedge Fund Index fell 2.76% in May, with nine out of ten sectors posting negative performance for the month.

"Although the industry was negatively impacted by the market sell-offs, hedge funds outperformed equity market indices such as the S&P 500 and MSCI World which fell 7.99% and 9.77% respectively in May. Dedicated Short Bias was the only sector to generate positive performance, gaining 5.84% for the month as managers benefited from negative equity market performance and overall higher volatility.
