A&P Emerging Manager Index down -0.72% in August

Emerging managers face another down month as hedge funds struggle to capture market trends.

Advisors & Partners LLP launched the A&P Emerging Manager Index (APEM Index©) on the 1st December 2015 and the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index ("A&P EMU Index©") on the 1st January 2017. Both the APEM index© and the A&P EMU Index© are designed to offer investors, who have a particular interest in early stage hedge fund investing, an effective research and benchmarking tool and to provide better visibility to asset managers who have launched new regulated offshore and onshore hedge fund investment products.

Details of the A&P Emerging Manager Index & the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index can be found on our website: https://www.advisorsandpartners. co.uk/knowledge/advisors-partners-indices/
