Dutch Hedge Funds Edge Up In August

Sep 28 2010 | 10:51am ET

Dutch hedge funds did better than many of their global peers in August, but not by much.

The Finles/IEX Hollandse hedge fund index added 0.3% last month, thanks to relatively defensive positioning. The index, which currently includes 28 hedge funds but will have 29 when the Frog Fund is added at the beginning of next month, was buoyed by quantitative and global macro funds.

The DQS Absolute Return Fund was the best performer of the aforementioned 28, followed by the Finles Liquid Macro Fund, World View Global Macro Fund, VOC Capital Commodity Alpha Fund and Fonds Bloemendaal.
