“The Credit Suisse Liquid Alternative Beta Index (CSLAB) generated negative performance in May, returning -2.64% for the month, bringing year-to-date performance to +0.27%.” Dr. Drachman said, “All four Liquid Alternative Beta (LAB) sector indices also posted negative performance in May, suggesting that hedge fund managers across different strategies suffered as a result of the month’s increased market volatility. Despite negative returns, hedge funds appear to have outperformed global equity markets, as represented by the MSCI World Index, which lost -9.91% in May and is down 7.59% year-to-date.”
LAB is a series of indices that seek to replicate the aggregate return profiles of alternative investment strategies using liquid, tradable instruments that are selected and weighted using an objective and transparent rules-based methodology. An algorithm determines the appropriate factors and weightings employed in seeking to replicate the returns of specific hedge fund strategies.
