Hedge funds returned about 2.62% last month, roughly half the gain managed by the Standard & Poor's 500 Index during 2013's first 31 days, the Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Index shows.

The latter benchmark rose 5.1% last month. None of the eight strategies tracked by Greenwich Alternative Investments managed such a return in January.

Long/short equity funds led the way last month with a 3.66% return, followed by long/short credit at 2.39%, multi-strategy at 2.23%, event-driven at 2.17% and macro at 2.08%. Futures funds added 1.83%, equity-market neutral funds 1.56% and arbitrage funds 1.16%.
