Index off to a solid start in critical year

by

European hedge funds began a critical year in solid form, with the EuroHedge Composite median up by 0.44% for the month.

Convertible arbitrage led the way with a gain of 2.74% - although emerging market equity funds, which were also hammered in 2008, had a hard time again with the median down 3.23%.

All other strategies were in positive territory except managed futures (last year's star performer, which began the new year with a down month) and event-driven.
