Introduction

Hedge funds continued their winning streak through October, making it the fourth consecutive month of healthy returns. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 2.27%1 in October, bringing its year-to-date October return to a strong 7.33%, as the underlying markets continued their upward trend for the second month running. The MSCI World Index2 gained 2.77% in the month, up 2.69% for the year.

All regional mandates delivered positive returns, with the exception of Japanese managers, as global markets kept up the momentum built up in September. A strong corporate earnings season and expectations of further quantitative easing resulted in healthy movements in the underlying markets. Asia ex-Japan funds continued their strong run, coming out on top for the fourth consecutive month, with gains of 3.08% and all strategies ending the month in positive territory. Managers investing in China witnessed a second month of excellent returns, up 3.78%, taking their two-month gain to 10.33%. Chinese managers were helped by a strong run in the underlying equity markets – the Shanghai Composite rose 11.53% while the Hang Seng gained 3.30%.

Managers in developed markets also registered some strong gains, with the Eurekahedge North American Hedge Fund Index gaining 2.47% in October. The healthy corporate earnings environment and increased investor confidence resulted in favourable conditions for equity based strategies – the S&P 500 was up 3.69% for the month.
