Related Topics

Long/short equity and global macro hedge funds posted positive returns in February, based on Credit Suisse’s LAB Liquid Indices.

The LAB Long/Short Liquid Index was up 1.01 per cent with gains coming primarily from long positions in the industrial and consumer sectors.

Despite February gains, long/short equity funds are down 0.46 per cent year-to-date as a result of increased global equity market volatility.

The Credit Suisse Global Macro Liquid Index finished the month up 1.14 per cent as many managers benefited from long commodity positions in February. The global macro sector is estimated to be up 2.33 per cent year-to-date.

LAB, formerly known as Alternative Index Replication, is a series of indices that seek to replicate the aggregate return profiles of alternative investment strategies using liquid, tradable instruments.
