A buoyant start to the year saw the EuroHedge Composite Index posting strong positive gains in a month that helped to dispel some of the gloom hanging over from 2011.

The index was up by 1.39% on a median basis and by over 2% on a mean average basis. All strategies were positive on the month – led by emerging-market equity (up by over 4% on a mean basis), and convertible and equity arbitrage (where the median was up by over 3%).

Equity-based strategies were generally the best performers – with global equity up by more than 3%
