Colin Lloyd, Author of Macro Investment Letter service ‘In the Long Run’ takes a look at the performance of the hedge fund industry in the New Year.
Lloyd discusses the reasons for the out performance of the Emerging Markets Index (up 3.02% in January). The losing side included just Merger Arbitrage Index (down 0.19%).
He also takes note of the response from the offshore funds to EU regulations and mentions it will be of particular importance post Brexit.
The segment concludes with Lloyds stating, “The old adage – buy trend followers on the drawdown still appears to have some serious advocates”.
This is because Swiss Capital Alternative investment announced that it will invest anywhere between $1-$2 billion in up to 25 managed futures managers and global macro managers over the coming year.
