Thursday, August 20, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - According to August's Eurekahedge report:

  • The CBOE Eurekahedge Relative Value Volatility Hedge Fund Index is up 5.12% year-to-date, coming in second place among all hedge fund strategic mandates.

  • CTA/managed futures funds have grown their asset base by 16% in 2015 largely on the back of strong capital inflows totalling US$25.6 billion.
