Greenwich investable indices led by futures managers in March
The Greenwich Composite Investable Hedge Fund Index advanced by 1.5 per cent in March as a result of strong global credit and equity markets.
All Greenwich investable indices moved higher during the month and all are currently positive for the year.
The Investable Futures Index was the largest gainer during the month, with a gain of 3.03 per cent.
Arbitrage and other market neutral strategies also continue to perform well, posting a gain of more than two per cent for the quarter.
Year-to-date, the event-driven and long-short credit investable indices have been the best performers with gains of 5.61 per cent and 3.30 per cent, respectively.
“The majority of hedge funds moved higher in March albeit at a measured pace. Net exposures of many long-short equity funds reflect a cautious optimism regarding near term market sentiment. Managers trading in credit markets meanwhile are very optimistic as corporate fundamentals continue to improve and new issuance demonstrates that there is healthy demand for high-yield going forward,” says Clint Binkley, senior vice president.
The indices are designed to capture the returns of the hedge fund universe.
