The Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta Index rose 1.65% in October, while the Standard & Poor's 500 Index added about 4.75%. On the year, the hedge fund benchmark is up 6.01%—and the S&P500 23.5%.
Event-driven was the best-performing strategy in October, rising 2.42% (9.12% year-to-date), followed by long/short at 2.16% (7.08% YTD). Global strategies added 1.22% on the month (4.59% YTD).
Both merger arbitrage and managed futures lost ground last month, with the former down 0.36% (up 6.5% YTD) and the latter 0.47% (up 3.24% YTD).
