Hedge Fund Performance April 2010

The hedge fund performance figures for April from HFR and Credit Suisse/Tremont are in. Credit Suisse/Tremont reports that funds overall gained 1.24% in April. HFRI (preliminary) was at 1.29% and HFRX 0.80%. according to Credit Suisse/Tremont most strategies did well apart from short bias which lost 3.89%. Equity strategies that involved shorting performwed weakly. Equity market neutral made 0.43% and long-short equity 0.29%. HFRI reported similar results for strategies except that equity hedge came in at 1.37%. HFRX reports losses in macro and much more variability across strategies than the other two sources. It is based on a smaller sample of funds that report daily and seems to be less reliable.
