Greenwich Ditches Van

Dec 13 2006 | 12:00pm ET

Just a year after buying Van Hedge Funds, Greenwich-Van is dropping the latter's name. The Greenwich, Conn.-based hedge fund index provider has rechristened itself Greenwich Alternative Investments, to “better reflect our view of the industry’s future,” according to Greenwich managing director Margaret Gilbert.

The firm’s widely-used benchmarks will be renamed to reflect the change, and will now be marketed under the monikers Greenwich Global Hedge Fund Indices and Greenwich Investable Hedge Fund Indices.

“As hedge fund investing evolves, the lines between alternative investments will continue to blur,” Gilbert explained.
