Hedge funds up 0.62 per cent in November, says BarclayHedge

Hedge Funds gained 0.62 per cent in November according to the Barclay Hedge Fund Index compiled by BarclayHedge. The index is up 9.08 per cent in 2017, and has had 13 consecutive winning months during which it gained 11.20 per cent return. “The possibility that the US Senate might pass a tax bill rallied domestic equity markets,” says Sol Waksman (pictured), founder and president of BarclayHedge. “For each of the past 13 months, the monthly close of the S&P 500 has set a new record high.”   Once again, the Technology Index powered upward with a 3.63 per cent return in November. Technology has had 12 months of gains in the past 13 months, and is now up 25.29 per cent for the year.   The Healthcare and Biotechnology Index bounced back from a 1.57 per cent loss in October with a 2.98 per cent gain in November. Equity Long Bias was up 1.63 per cent, Emerging Markets added 0.64 per cent, Distressed Securities were up 0.59 per cent, and Pacific Rim Equities rose 0.33 per cent.   Eight hedge fund indices lost ground in November. The Merger Arbitrage Index was down 0.79 per cent, European Equities gave up 0.57 per cent, Fixed Income Arbitrage lost 0.30 per cent, and Convertible Arbitrage slid 0.21 per cent.   All of Barclay’s 17 hedge fund indices are profitable after eleven months. Following the strong performance of the Technology Index, Healthcare & Biotechnology is up 18.70 per cent for the year, Emerging Markets have gained 16.40 per cent, Pacific Rim Equities are up 13.18 per cent, and the Equity Long Bias Index has added 12.67 per cent.   The Barclay Fund of Funds Index lost 0.03 per cent in November, but is up 5.66 per cent for the year. offResults and performanceFundsIndexesFlag: alphaq

HFR launches blockchain, cryptocurrency indices

HFR has launched two new indices, the HFR Blockchain Composite Index and the HFR Cryptocurrency Index, the first family of indices designed to capture performance of hedge funds investing in this rapidly evolving space. The HFR Blockchain Composite Index includes funds that invest directly in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency or other emerging blockchain innovations. Managers focus on how blockchain technologies have begun to, and will continue to, fundamentally change payments, banking, market trading structure, Internet of things (IoT), healthcare, remittances, supply chains, digital identity and more. In addition, key exposure themes include cloud storage, decentralised computing, digital investment platforms, distributed ledger technology and promising innovations involving token interconnectivity and transaction scalability. The HFR Blockchain Composite Index has two constituent strategies – Cryptocurrency and Infrastructure. It includes performance data starting in 2015 with annualised performance of +282 per cent since inception, punctuated by a meteoric surge of +1,522 per cent in 2017 through November.       The HFR Cryptocurrency Index, a sub-strategy index of the Blockchain Composite, includes all funds which invest and trade in cryptocurrency directly, typically generating performance through an actively managed portfolio of cryptocurrency assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple and many other coins, as well as new initial coin offerings (ICOs). Managers may use a variety of trading strategies from discretionary techniques to multiple automated bitcoin trading algorithms to analyse trends and adjust their portfolios as necessary. These trading strategies are primarily Macro in nature, including both fundamental and systematic trend-following approaches, but may also include, Arbitrage and Momentum strategies. The HFR Cryptocurrency Index has annualised performance of +292 per cent since inception and has surged +1,641 per cent in 2017 through November.   HFR began tracking the first cryptocurrency hedge fund in 2013, though interest and growth in this area has surged in 2017 as a result...
