The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was down 4.15% for the year, making it the second worst yearly return on record. Hedge funds continued to outperform the MSCI World Index, which was down 0.40%1 in December and 9.9% for 2011.  The outperformance was led by the larger funds as evident from positive figures posted by the Mizuho Eurekahedge Top 100 Index, which was up 1.87% in 2011.

Most regional hedge funds delivered gains in December while distressed debt hedge funds brought in the highest percentage gain for the month among the different strategic mandates.
