New Index To Track Largest Hedge Fund Stock Holdings

Nov 23 2011 | 7:21am ET

Wells Fargo has struck upon a new way to measure hedge fund performance: by tracking their largest holdings.

The bank has launched an index that offers the real-time performance of the 100 largest stock holdings reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission by hedge funds and managed accounts. The new Wells Fargo Hedge Fund Manager Holdings Index, with the ticker symbol “HEDGE,” will be updated every 15 seconds by the New York Stock Exchange.

“Aggregating hedge fund holdings and illustrating the performance through an index will bring greater transparency to the sector,” Dan Forth, head of strategic indexing for Wells Fargo, said. “We believe the index will provide investors with a unique tool to help better manage their own portfolios, by providing them with a benchmark for measuring hedge funds’ performance in the market.”
