Lipper: Hedge Funds Fall 0.94% In Jan.

Feb 17 2010 | 1:59am ET

It was a cold January for hedge funds, according to the Lipper Hedge Fund Composite Index.

The average fund opened 2010 with a 0.94% drop. While hardly a bloodbath, the losses were widespread, with just one strategy ending the month in the black. That strategy was credit-focus, which added 0.27% in January.

Managed futures funds took the biggest dive, falling 2.79%. Other hedged strategies did nearly as badly, losing 2.67%. Long-bias funds shed 1.7%, long/short equity funds 1.05% and convertible arbitrage funds 0.27%.
