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

Emanagers Total Index up 1.37% in December (+5.27% in 2012)

Emerging manager hedge funds and managed futures funds performed well in the last month of 2012, according to a first estimation based on the data of 300 funds listed in Opalesque Solutions' Emanagers database.
