GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index up 0.51% (est.) in April (+3.66% YTD)

Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - The gross return of the GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index for April, 2012 measured 0.51%.

  • Current month, flash estimate 0.51%
  • Year-to-date (YTD) performance 3.66%
  • Last 12 month (LTM) performance 1.22%
  • Live to date (LTD) performance 64.52%

“The GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index was positive in April,” said Hans Hufschmid, chief executive officer, GlobeOp Financial Services. “The data supports the pattern of low equity market correlation that the Performance Index has established since inception in 2006. It also underlines the Index’s value as a proxy for a diversified portfolio of hedge fund investments.”

The GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index is an asset-weighted, independent monthly window on hedge fund performance. On the 10th business day of each month it provides a flash estimate of the gross aggregate performance of funds for which GlobeOp provides monthly administration services. Interim and final values, both gross and net, are provided in each of the two following months, respectively. Online data can be segmented by gross and net performance, and by time periods. The GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index is transparent, consistent in data processing, and free from selection or survivorship bias. Its inception date is January 1, 2006.

The GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index offers a unique reflection of the return on capital invested in funds. It does not overstate exposure to, or the contribution of, any single strategy to aggregate hedge fund performance. Since its inception, the correlation of the GlobeOp Performance Index to many popular equity market indices has been approximately 25% to 30%. This is substantially lower than the equivalent correlation of other widely followed hedge fund performance indices. Corporate website:
