Hedge Fund Performance Commentary

The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index gained 1.06% in April, after recording one of its strongest Q1 returns post-crisis. Hedge fund managers have recorded four consecutive months of positive performance since the beginning of 2019, supported by strength in the global equity and bond markets which resulted from encouraging economic data and accommodating central bank policies. On a year-to-date basis, hedge fund managers are up 5.15% as of April 2019. Positive earnings surprises helped renew investors’ optimism in the global equity market, which rallied 3.38% during the month as represented by the MSCI ACWI (Local). Optimism over the progress of the US-China trade talks helped bolster the equity markets around the globe over the first four months of the year, counterbalancing concerns over economic growth slowdown. However, recent development of the US-China negotiations pointed towards another escalation of the trade tension, with the US president announcing more tariffs in early May.
