All strategies positive as the revival gathers momentum

by

All strategy areas were positive in May as European hedge funds rode a powerful rally in equities and other asset classes. On a median basis, the EuroHedge Composite Index was up by almost 2% for a YTD gain of just over 4%. On a mean basis, the return was even better - with the index up by 3.2% for a YTD return of over 6.5%.

Emerging markets, convertible arbitrage, global equity and multi-strategy/mixed arbitrage led the way - with good returns also in European long/short equity, macro, managed futures, credit and equity market-neutral/quant strategies.
