Credit Suisse: Hedge Funds Down 0.58% In June

Jul 6 2011 | 10:08am ET

Hedge funds lost 0.58% in June, according to the Credit Suisse LAB Liquid Indices.

The declines reflect continuing difficulty for global stock markets and “uncertainty regarding Greek debt,” Jordan Drachman, head of alternative beta strategies research at Credit Suisse. The flagship Liquid Alternative Beta Index remains up for the first half despite losing ground in May and June at 3.44%.

All four of the strategies tracked by the suite of indices were in the red, none more so than event-driven, which lost 1.43% (up 3.95% year-to-date). Merger arbitrage funds fell 0.73% on the month (up 4.48% YTD), long/short funds fell 0.36% (up 5.2% YTD) and global strategies funds lost 0.27% (up 2.72% YTD).
