The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index Gained 1.59% in July

The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Index Gained 1.59% in July, its highest performance since March 2010

A new monthly commentary offers insight into July hedge fund performance. Some key findings from the report include:

- Eight-out-of-ten strategies in the Index posted positive performance in July as markets reversed from the May-June slide.
- Emerging Markets and Long/Short Equity were the best performers in the Index on the back of the rebound in the equities markets, posting 3.52% and 2.53% respectively.
- Event Driven recovered from its May and June losses posting positive performance of 1.81% for the month. The Risk Arbitrage subsector provided the best returns as a result of increased M&A activity globally.
- Global Macro performance (+ 0.65%) was more subdued than in previous months as reversals in key themes acted against many managers’ long gold and short euro positions.
- Managed Futures (-1.52%) and Dedicated Short Bias (-3.52%) were the only two sectors to post negative performance in July.
