Barclay Hedge Fund Index down 0.64%; worst annual performance since 2011

Hedge funds lost 0.64% in December according to the Barclay Hedge Fund Index compiled by BarclayHedge. The index was up 0.29% at the end of 2015, its smallest yearly gain since 2011 when it declined 5.48%. The index was unable to outperform the S&P 500 Total Return Index, which gained 1.38% last year.

“The year ended on a down note for risk assets as investors pondered the implications of slowing growth after several years of tepid recovery,” says Sol Waksman, founder and president of BarclayHedge. Eleven of Barclay’s 18 hedge fund indices lost ground in December. Distressed Securities were down 1.54%, Equity Long Bias lost 1.35%, the Global Macro Index was down 1.08%, Convertible Arbitrage lost 0.96%, and the Emerging Markets Index gave up 0.59%.
