Wells Fargo launches Hedge Fund Manager Holdings Index


Wells Fargo & Company has launched the Wells Fargo Hedge Fund Manager Holdings Index. The Index measures the real-time performance of the 100 largest positions in equities and equity-related securities as reported quarterly to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by hedge funds or managed accounts.

The Index represents modified market capitalisation weighted to provide diversified exposure in the market. The securities are required to be listed on the NYSE or NASDAQ and to satisfy specific market capitalisation and other eligibility requirements.

"Aggregating hedge fund holdings and illustrating the performance through an index will bring greater transparency to the sector," says Dan Forth, head of strategic indexing for Wells Fargo. "We believe the index will provide investors with a unique tool to help better manage their own portfolios, by providing them with a benchmark for measuring hedge funds’ performance in the market."

The value of the Index will be disseminated by NYSE every 15 seconds over the Consolidated Tape Association’s Network B between the hours of 9:30 am and 4:15 pm EST/EDT under the ticker symbol "HEDGE."
