The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index Down 2.88% in August

New York (HedgeCo.net) – The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index fell less than half that of broad equity indexes in August.

“The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index finished down 2.88% in August.” Oliver Schupp, President of Credit Suisse Index Co., LLC, said, “Despite challenging conditions throughout the month, hedge funds appeared to be effective in providing a degree of capital preservation when compared to global equity markets, which fell 7.69% as represented by the Dow Jones Global Index. This outperformance is largely due to the strategic de-risking of many managers who began reducing net exposure in the weeks, or even months, preceding the correction.”
