Swiss HedgePole Launches UCITS Indices

Jul 26 2011 | 9:51am ET

Switzerland's HedgePole, a hedge fund service provider, has launched two UCITS indices—one focused on global macro strategies, the other on managed futures/CTAs.

HedgePole says its indices are unique in that they aim to cover all UCITS funds matching the selection criteria to give a “fair, reliable and independent representation of the performance of the relevant strategies.” The company says it will ensure funds meet criteria such as compliance with the UCITS directive. Moreover, it will source NAVs “pro-actively and directly” from the constituent fund managers or their administrators “ensuring that each calculation includes 100% of the underlings’ latest updated NAVs.”

The index constituents are equally weighted with minimum assets under management of €10 million and matching the strategy of the relevant index.

The official launch date was May 1, 2011. However, the historical performances have been tracked since May 2010.
