Hedge funds fell in June, according to the Lyxor Hedge Fund Index, but not as much as many benchmarks show.

As with other hedge fund indices, the strongest strategy tracked by Lyxor was short-bias, which jumped 1.88% amidst volatile equity markets. Distressed securities funds added an average of 1.49%, while fixed-income arbitrage funds rose 1.27%.
