Hedge Funds Up Almost 1% In March

Apr 9 2007 | 9:57am ET

Hedge funds went back to their trailing-the-broader-markets way in March, but that will be cold comfort to anyone whose investments track the Standard & Poor’s 500.

The Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Index rose 0.98% in March, behind the S&P500’s 1.12%, but year-to-date, it’s not even close. The Greenwich index is up 2.82% in 2007, while the S&P500 needed March’s bump just to get back into the black, at 0.64%, after February’s bloodbath sent it into the red.

According to Greenwich Alternative Investments, 17 of the 18 strategies it follows are on positive group this year, and 14 of those have returned more than 2% year-to-date. The laggard is futures, which plummeted almost 2% in March and is down 2.5% in 2007.
