Hedge Fund Performance Commentary for the Month of September 2013

Eurekahedge

October 2013
 

Introduction

Hedge funds realised gains in September as global markets trended upwards during the month. The Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index was up 1.18%1  while global stock indices outperformed as the MSCI World Index2 gained 3.87% in September.

Global markets remained in headline-following mode during the month, rising in the first few weeks as the risk of a US strike on Syria declined. Positive macroeconomic data from Europe and China also pushed up market indices and the decision of the US Federal Reserve to maintain the pace of asset-purchase, added further strength to the rally. Markets declined in the latter half of the month as investor focus turned to the budget impasse in the US Congress.

August 2013 and September 2013 returns across regions

All regions posted positive returns for the month with emerging markets focused funds posting the strongest gains. Greater China and India focused funds were up 2.14% and 6.93% respectively, while on the whole Asia ex-Japan managers gained 2.73%. The Hang Seng Index gained 5.19% in September; the Shanghai Composite was up 3.64%, while in India the BSE Sensex gained 4.08%.
