The Lyxor Hedge Fund Index was up 0.8 per cent in July, with seven out of 10 Lyxor indices ending the month in the black, according to the firm’s latest Alternative Investment Industry Barometer.

Hence, we maintain a preference for hedge fund strategies with a relative value bias,” says Philippe Ferreira (pictured), senior cross-asset strategist, Lyxor Asset Management.
