The Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index was neither here nor there last month, returning a flat 0.00% in July. Overall, the index has returned 8.70% YTD.
Dedicated short sellers led the way returning 7.14% (4.83% YTD) last month while managed futures traders fared the worst down 4.79% (-2.23% YTD).
Other strategies returned between -1.96% and 2.55%.
“In the face of the slowdown in equity markets performance, U.S. Treasury bonds rallied as investors sought more stable investments,” said Oliver Schupp, President of the Credit Suisse Index Co.
“Liquidity from overseas and the fact that inflation remained somewhat contained prevented further downward pressure during this turbulent time. Overall, this market environment has led to five of the 10 hedge fund sectors ending July on a positive note and the Dedicated Short Bias sector, in particular, experienced positive performance on the back of falling equity markets, up 7.14%.”
