Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index Asset Weighted up 1.07% in August, (-0.95% YTD)

Friday, September 27, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - The Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index ended August 2013 up 1.07% on an asset weighted basis (-0.95% YTD) and rose 0.79% on an equal weighted basis (0.26% YTD).

The aim of the Scotiabank Canadian Hedge Fund Index is to provide a comprehensive overview of the Canadian Hedge Fund universe. To achieve this, index returns are calculated using both an equal weighting and an asset-based weighting of the funds. The index includes both open and closed funds with a minimum AUM of C$15 million and at least a 12 month track record of returns, managed by Canadian-domiciled hedge fund managers.
