Special Situations, Emerging Markets Hit It Big In ‘06

Oct 26 2006 | 6:38am ET

Hedge fund investors seeing the best returns this year are in special situations, emerging markets and statistical arbitrage funds, according to Hedgefund.net’s indices.

Those three strategies are up, on average, 14.98%, 11.79% and 10.28% on the year. Overall, 10 HFN averages are beating the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index – which rose 2.58% in September to hit 8.53% on the year – in 2006. The others are small/micro-cap, healthcare, convertible arbitrage, distressed, value, merger/risk arbitrage and finance.

On the other side, according to HFN, global macro and long/short equity have not been so lucky.
