Market Vectors Investible Indices All Fall In January

Feb 2 2015 | 1:52pm ET

January was a cold month for the Market Vectors Index Solutions indices, with all six of the firm’s investable long/short equity indices in the red.

The worst performer was the long/short equity index, which was down 2.22% in January. The Asia (developed) long/short equity index was the next biggest loser, dropping 1.52% for the month. The global long/short equity index dropped 1.12%. The Western Europe long/short equity index fell 0.9%. The emerging markets long/short equity index dropped 0.75% for the month, while the global event long/short equity index was the best performer, losing only 0.46%.

Each index is constructed using transparent, liquid ETFs and U.S. Treasury securities to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions. With a history stretching back to 2003, the Market Vectors long/short equity indices use a patented methodology in seeking to capture the beta returns of universes of statistically similar hedge funds that exhibit in aggregate consistently high concentrations of beta.
