The Credit Suisse Inverse Long/Short Equity Replication Index was up 1.06% net in February, according to Jordan Drachman, head of research for alternative beta strategies at Credit Suisse.
Drachman noted that hedge funds showed relative decorrelation to the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, which was down about 11% in February.
“In this challenging market environment, the Inverse AIR LOSHO Index was up 1.06%,” Drachman said. “By providing inverse hedge fund-like returns, the Inverse AIR LOSHO Index is able to offer investors insight into the performance of short exposure to the common factors driving the long/short equity sector of the hedge fund universe,” he said.
The AIR LOSHO Index tracks the long/short equity sector of the benchmark Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index.
