Early Data for Hedge Funds in December 2009
If hedge funds are going to enjoy a big December, they may need a big holiday bounce.
Through the end of last week, the three remaining Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks aren’t exactly blowing down doors. The best of the lot, equity long/short funds, is up just 0.33% through the first three weeks of the month. The worst, event-driven, is actually down 0.14%.
Merger arbitrage funds are up 0.11% during the same period. That benchmark is up 7.7% on the year; event-driven funds have returned 15% and equity long/short 3.7%.
The other three Dow Jones indices, convertible arbitrage, distressed securities and equity market-neutral, are suspended. Source
