Hedge Fund Performance Commentary for the Month of May 2013

June 2013
 

Introduction

Hedge funds witnessed the seventh consecutive month of positive returns in May amid mixed returns in global markets. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 0.32%1 during the month, while the MSCI World Index2 declined by 0.45% in May. 

May started off on a good note with positive economic data from the US, leading to rallies in global equity markets, specifically in North America where market indices reached all-time highs. The US dollar strengthened against most major currencies, going above 100 level against the Japanese yen for the first time since 2009. The positive sentiment turned mid-month amid weak manufacturing numbers from China and uncertainty regarding the withdrawal of the US Federal Reserve’s asset purchase program.
