About the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index
Following the market events of 2008, increased attention has been focused on liquid hedge fund structures, including managed accounts which tend to offer greater liquidity and increased transparency. The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index is the only hedge fund index to seek to measure the performance of this rapidly growing industry segment by sourcing funds from multiple managed account platforms, an advantage over indices which are built on a single managed account platform that may have a particular sector bias.
