Wednesday, September 16, 2015

Komfie Manalo, Opalesque Asia:

Alternative UCITS were not spared by the market turbulence in August.

The UCITS HFS Index was down 1.28% during the month (+0.67% YTD).

Dennis Drenjovski of 2n20.com, a financial service provider specialized in internet based services tailored for the hedge fund industry, said that all twelve sub-strategies reported losses in August, the three worst performing strategies being L/S Equity (-1.99%), CTA (-1.95%) and global macro (-1.64%).

The only two strategies who fared rather well in August were currency (-0.13%) and market neutral (-0.06%). The latter is also one of the top performers in 2015 so far (1.88%), the others being L/S Equity (2.48%) and global macro (2.01%).

Similarly, the UCITS Alternative Index Global , lost -2.3% in August (+0.56% YTD). All UCITS alternative sub-strategy indices, run by Hedgeanalytics AB, Switzerland, were down that month.

Lyxor’s Weekly Brief reported yesterday that inflows into alternative UCITS reached a record in July (EUR 7.7bn), adding, "This is just the beginning or a long term re- weighting of hedge funds in institutional portfolios." Total net assets stand at €257bn, and the cumulative net inflows YTD at €43bn.
