Hedge fund clone portfolios beat US stock market in 2009


Over 70 per cent of AlphaClone’s 3,100 simulated hedge fund clone portfolios beat the S&P 500 market index in 2009, with over half outperforming by ten percentage points or more.

Leveraging the publicly disclosed stock picks of the world’s top hedge fund managers, AlphaClone created a series of passive investment strategies that seek to systematically capture alpha typically only available to high-net-worth investors.

These cloning strategies performed particularly well in 2009 compared to the US market, as represented by the S&P 500.

The year’s best-performing single fund clone was the Eagle Value Partners clone, which garnered a total return of 220.8 per cent for the year compared to 26.5 per cent for the S&P 500 Index.

"We’re thrilled with the outstanding performance of our clone portfolios since we launched a year ago," says Mazin Jadallah, founder and chief executive of AlphaClone. "Today’s investors are savvy but have very limited access to the world’s top hedge funds. With AlphaClone, investors can extract value from the collective intelligence of the world’s best stock pickers and put that value to work in their own investment accounts."

AlphaClone’s subscription-based research solution includes an intuitive online strategy simulation tool that enables investors to explore and customize smart money portfolios that fit their needs. Investors can access current stock picks and backtest portfolios with ten years of historical market data.
