Hedge fund again trailed the broader markets with just three months left to make up the difference, according to a suite of industry replication indices.

The Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta Index added 0.59% last month, well behind the 2.58% return for the Standard & Poor's 500 Index in September. On the year, it's not even that close: The LAB index is up 2.97%, while the S&P is up in excess of 16%.

Long/short hedge funds did best, the indices show, rising 1.34% (5.06% year-to-date). Event-driven funds added 0.94% (8.1% YTD) and global strategies 0.23% (0.34% YTD). Managed futures fell 1.32% (down 6.59% YTD) and merger arbitrage 0.87% (down 2.94% YTD).
