Hedge Funds Year-to-Date Returns in Positive Territory for First Time in 2016

The Preqin All-Strategies Hedge Fund benchmark recorded the second consecutive month of positive hedge fund performance in April to bring 2016 YTD figures into the black for the first time this year. Returns of 1.44% through the month follow gains of 2.40% in March to put performance for 2016 so far at 0.70%, as hedge funds take advantage of calmer economic markets and improving commodity prices.

All leading strategies returned gains through the month, with event driven strategies up 2.17% and equity strategies returning 1.73%, making these the two strategies with the greatest returns for a second month running. Relative value funds posted the smallest gains of 0.47% and are the only leading strategy to still be recording losses (-0.05%) for 2016 YTD. Credit strategies continued from the robust returns seen in March to record gains of 1.25%, while multi-strategy (+0.59%) and macro strategies (+1.02%) funds also saw healthy performance through April.
