After four months on the shelf, Dow Jones has resumed publication of two of the three hedge fund indices that it had suspended.
Dow Jones Hedge Fund Indices began calculating its equity long/short and equity-market neutral benchmarks again today. The two funds were suspended in November, after the investment manager of the managed account platform that supports the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks instituted “temporary risk mitigation measures.”
Dow Jones’ convertible arbitrage benchmark, which was suspended on Jan. 2, remains out of commission.
The company said it will publish a price history for the equity long/short and equity-market neutral benchmarks based on their actual performance, “which will reflect the temporarily reduced investment exposure of the portfolios.”
