Greenwich AI Unveils New Investable Hedge Fund Indices

Feb 26 2010 | 2:24pm ET

Greenwich Alternative Investments has added seven new investable hedge fund indices to its existing lineup of actively managed, strategy-based investable indices.

According to the firm, the creation of the new indices is designed to provide greater flexibility to investors who want to capture the performance of more specific hedge fund strategies.

“The new lineup of Greenwich Investable Indices gives investors a greater number of options in terms of both liquidity and hedge fund strategies to aid portfolio construction in the alternative investment space,” said Clint Binkley, senior vice president. “They are specifically designed to capture the beta moves of investment strategies that are unique to the hedge fund asset class.”

The Greenwich Composite Investable Hedge Fund Index outperformed the Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Index (GGHFI) in January, posting returns of -0.27% (monthly liquidity) and -0.41% (quarterly liquidity).  This compares to global equity returns in the S&P 500 Total Return -3.60%, MSCI World Equity -4.19%, and FTSE 100 -4.14% equity indices.
