SS&C GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index: December performance 0.84%

Friday, January 12, 2018
Opalesque Industry Update - The gross return of the SS&C GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index for December 2017 measured 0.84%.

Hedge fund flows as measured by the SS&C GlobeOp Capital Movement Index declined 1.35% in January.

"SS&C GlobeOp's Capital Movement Index for January 2018 showed net flows of -1.35%, which should be viewed as a very strong result considering January typically produces significant net outflows for hedge funds," said Bill Stone, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, SS&C Technologies. "In fact, on a year-over-year basis, the -1.35% for January 2018 represents a sharp improvement from the -3.30% reported for the same period a year ago for January 2017 and is also the lowest net outflow for any month of January since 2012. Moreover, this gain was driven by a combination of increased inflows as well as lower outflows, indicating that 2018 is off to a strong start for hedge funds in terms of both attracting and retaining assets."

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 SS&C 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 SS&C 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.
