Global Trend Hedge Funds


We had not featured Morningstar rankings but heard from some commodity trading advisors that they were ranked by Morningstar. So we decided to look into the matter.


The Morningstar class that covers managed futures is global trend hedge funds, defined as strategies that profit from momentum or price trends in currencies, interest rates, stocks and commodities. In the index system, trend and non-trend funds are the two components of the global index.


Below are the top global trend hedge funds by 12-month return through the end of February 2010. Some managers had two funds with similar returns in the Morningstar ranking. We’ve including only one fund per manager.
