The Credit Suisse Long/Short Equity Replication Index gained 0.14% net in April, according to Jordan Drachman, head of research for Alternative Beta Strategies at Credit Suisse.
“In an environment where the S&P 500 was up approximately 10% in April, hedge funds returned positive performance,” said Drachman. “By providing hedge fund-like returns, the AIR LOSHO Index was up 0.14% for the month while the Credit Suisse Global Macro Replication Index was down 0.37% over the same period. Early estimates for the long/short equity sector of the Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index also point towards a modest positive return, while early estimates for the global macro sector of the benchmark point towards a modest negative return.”
The AIR GLMAC Index seeks to track the Global Macro sector of the benchmark Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index, while the AIR LOSHO Index seeks to track the Long/Short Equity sector of the same benchmark.

"I tell people that everybody likes good news and so if you have good performance that’s wonderful,” explains Mike McKitish of Peddie School's endowment, “but it’s the people that want to talk about the bad news or where they drifted and how they came back and how they stayed to their discipline…” that he wants to hear from.
