Spring may have sprung, but hedge funds have not.
Sure, it was up, adding 0.9% on the April. And only one strategy had a losing month, macro—and that only barely, down 0.04%, according to the RBC Hedge 250 Index.
But the broader markets had it better, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index adding 1.57% on the month and 7.05% on the year. By contrast, the RBC index is up just 2.81% in the first four months of 2010.
Credit funds enjoyed the strongest April, rising 1.92%, followed by fixed-income arbitrage (1.5%), mergers and special situations (1.39%) and managed futures (1.24%).
