The equity and bond market selloff that took place recently took its toll on some hedge fund strategies. Due to their long fixed income stance established during 2014, CTAs sharply underperformed Macro managers during the market rout. Meanwhile, macro managers that had built up short positions on European rates in April proved overall resilient. Some macro managers were up 2 per cent last week while others, who were most exposed to European equities were down 1 per cent. In the CTA space, losses were broad based and reached high single digits in some cases.
