Monday, August 27, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index finished up 1.42% in July. A new monthly commentary offers insight into hedge fund performance through the month of July. Some key findings from the report include:

  • Hedge funds, as measured by the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index, finished July up 1.42%, with 8 out of 10 strategies in positive territory;
  • In total, the industry saw estimated outflows of approximately $8.5 billion in July, bringing overall assets under management for the industry to approximately $1.75 trillion;

  • Managed Futures funds posted positive results in July, with the month almost a mirror image of June in which managers were able to recoup the previous months’ losses and rebuild positions according to stronger signals; and
  • Event Driven funds generated overall positive performance in July against the backdrop of European sovereign debt issues and growth concerns in developed economies. M&A activity experienced a slight uptick in newly announced transaction volume in July and credit strategies generated gains during the month as a result of supportive technical strength and improved risk sentiment.
