A volatile May put a big dent into the Lyxor Hedge Fund Index's year-to-date performance.
The index dropped 1.8% last month, slashing its 2011 return to just 0.3%. By contrast, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index is up almost 8% on the year.

Merger arbitrage funds are up an average of 3.02% through five months, while long/short equity variable bias funds have managed an average return of 3%.
