All six MVIS investable long/short equity indexes negative in January


All six of the Market Vectors Index Solutions (MVIS) investable Long/Short Equity Indices saw negative returns in January.

The Market Vectors North America Long/Short Equity Index was the month’s biggest loser down 2.22%, followed by the Market Vectors Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index (-1.51%), the Market Vectors Global Long/Short Equity Index (-1.12%) and the Market Vectors Western Europe Long/Short Equity Index (-0.90%).

The Market Vectors Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index and the Market Vectors Global Event Long/Short Equity Index also ended the month in negative territory with returns of -0.75% and -0.46% respectively.

Each index is constructed using transparent, liquid ETFs and US Treasury securities to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions.

With a history stretching back to 2003, the Market Vectors Long/Short Equity Indices use a patented methodology in seeking to capture the beta returns of universes of statistically similar hedge funds that exhibit in aggregate consistently high concentrations of beta. MVIS currently offers four regional and two global long/short equity strategies.
