Greenwich AI: Hedge Funds Fall Short Of Double-Digits

Jan 8 2014 | 12:27pm ET

Hedge funds returned 8.99% last year, according to a widely-followed industry index.

December's Santa Claus rally failed to lift the Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Index into double-digit territory. The benchmark rose just 0.94% on the month, which saw the Standard & Poor's 500 Index rise 2.53%.

For the year, the S&P500 was up more than 30%.

Long/short equity was the best-performing strategy of 2013, adding 14.41% on the year, according to Greenwich Alternative Investments. Event-driven funds came in second at 14.04% but was the best strategy in December, up 1.34%.
