Five out of six ETF-based MVIS hedge fund beta indices positive in May


Five out of six of Market Vectors Index Solutions’ (MVIS) investable hedge fund beta indices recorded positive performance in May.

Each index is constructed using transparent, liquid ETFs to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions.
MV Asia (Developed) L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index was the top performer with a return of 1.42 per cent.
This was followed by the MV Global Event L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index (0.93 per cent), the MV North America L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index (0.89 per cent), the MV Emerging Markets L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index (0.73 per cent) and the MV Global L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index (0.71 per cent).
The MV Western Europe L/S Equity Hedge Fund Beta Index was the only one of the six to finish the month in negative territory with a return of -0.19 per cent.
