Technology firm 2n20.com and index provider Structured Solutions have fashioned a series of UCITS hedge fund indices, offering an eye onto the growing stable of regulation-friendly hedge fund vehicles. Over the past two years, more than 200 such funds have been launched, collecting more than $35 billion, according to Hedge Fund Research.

2n20, which is building the database upon which the indices are based, already boasts 150 funds included. Structured Solutions will calculate the indices, which will cover such strategies as arbitrage, credit, equity long/short, event-driven, global macro and multi-strategy.

2n20 and Structured Solutions aren’t the only ones aiming for a piece of the UCITS index action. The Hedge Fund Journal has launched its own absolute return UCITS indices--UCITS Hedge-Tomlinson Indices--and a corresponding database.
