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.

The Emanagers Total Index gained 1.37% in December and 5.27% in 2012.  Estimates for November and October were corrected to +0.18% and -0.84%, respectively. Since inception in January 2009, the index posted compounded returns of 65%.

Emerging managers thus outperformed their established peers in 2012 (Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index: +6.18%, Newedge CTA Index: -2.84%), but were unable to beat the global stock market, which gained over 13%, according to the MSCI World Index.
