Hedge Fund Performance Update: May 2019
We look at hedge fund performance benchmarks for May 2019, comparing them to April and revealing the 2019 YTD and 12-month return figures across top-level strategies, structures, denominations and size classifications.
Ending a four-month positive streak, the Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark generated its first negative monthly return for the year in May, posting a loss of 0.10%. Only two top-level strategies were able to make gains in the month: relative value and credit strategies. BRL-denominated and emerging hedge funds managed to avoid losses, though, upping their YTD returns.
