Hedge funds posted gains but once again failed to match the returns of the broader markets, an series of investable industry replication indices shows.
Market Vectors Index Solutions said its Global L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index rose 2.32% last month. By contrast, the Standard & Poor's 500 Index rose nearly 5% in July.
North American funds did best, rising 3.01%, followed by Western European funds at 1.91%, emerging markets at 1.52% and developed Asian funds at 0.42%. Global event funds added an average of 1.49%.
Market Vectors Index Solutions uses liquid exchange-traded funds to mimic the returns of hedge funds.
