Emanagers Indices - November 2012's performance of the Opalesque Emanagers indices

Emerging manager hedge funds and managed futures funds gained 0.3% last month, according to a first estimation based on the data of 305 funds listed in Opalesque Solutions' Emanagers database.

The Emanagers Total Index was up 0.3% in November, bringing its net year-to-date return to 4.14%.  Estimates for October and September were corrected to -0.68% and +0.24%, respectively. Since inception in January 2009, the index posted compounded returns of 63%.

Over the last 12 months, emerging managers gained 4.08% in 6 negative and 6 positive months and slightly underperformed the Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index, which gained 4.24% in the same period. Global stocks, tracked by the MSCI World Index, gained 11% over the last 12 months.
