Hedge funds were broadly higher last month, if not by much, an industry replication index shows.

Event-driven added 0.57% (6.5% YTD), fixed-income arbitrage 0.51% (8.2% YTD) and market-neutral 0.47% (2.17% YTD).
Only the IQ Hedge Global Macro Beta Index lost ground in November, falling 0.6% (up 6.08% YTD).
